Two cars collide, one person injured
RHINELANDER - Ignoring traffic lights can be dangerous. One person ended up in the hospital after another car drove through a red light and hit them in Rhinelander.

It happened just after 9 o'clock on Highway 8. Oneida County Sheriff's Office says two cars collided at the intersection of State Trunk Highway 17 north by Pioneer Equipment.

A car turning left on to 17 did not stop at the red light and hit the other car headed west on eight. The driver headed west was taken to Ministry Saint Mary's Hospital with minor injuries.

The sheriff's office says the person who didn't stop at the light will get a citation.
