Feb. 23—Speed was a factor in Sunday's vehicle collision near Central Union Church, police say.

Police said a red Kia sedan operated by a man, possibly in his 20s, was traveling westbound on South Beretania Street shortly before 2 p.m. when it rear-ended a silver Chevrolet sedan driven by a 23-year-old woman near the intersection of Pawaa Lane.

The impact caused the Chevrolet to hit a parked, unoccupied Toyota truck.

Police said the Kia then veered off the road and hit a tree fronting Central Union Church.

The Kia driver sustained injuries to his head and body and was taken in critical condition to a hospital.

The Chevrolet driver and her passenger, 25, sustained minor injuries and were taken in stable condition to a hospital.

Police said an investigation is ongoing.
