VERNON - A tourist got herself in some trouble Sunday night in Vernon when she failed to yield to an oncoming vehicle.

The Italian woman was driving a rented Kia car in the area of 27 Street and 53 Avenue around 10 p.m.

She didn’t notice a Chevy Tracker in the roadway in front of her and ran into it.

The 75-year-old driver of the Chevy and his passengers all received minor injuries in the collision while the tourist and her two passengers were fine. She earned herself a violation ticket for failure to yield.
