Two people were taken to a hospital after a two-car crash in Ocean Beach the night of June 22, according to San Diego police.

A 2015 Kia Soul being driven east on Sunset Cliffs Boulevard by a 26-year-old woman struck the rear of a 2008 Nissan Altima that was stopped at a red light at the intersection of Nimitz Boulevard at about 9:50 p.m., according to Officer John Buttle.

The 40-year-old woman driving the Nissan was taken to a hospital with complaints of head pain. A 25-year-old man who was a passenger in the Kia suffered a spinal fracture and had no feeling in his legs, Buttle said. The injuries were not considered life-threatening.

San Diego Police Department traffic officers are investigating the crash. Alcohol was not a factor, Buttle said.
