By Katherine Wartell

A 22-year-old Wichita woman was hospitalized after being involved in a car accident in the 4800 block of Pillsbury Drive Friday night.

Lt. Josh Kyle said that Brenda Belazco was driving northbound on K-177 when Alan Duong, 19, Manhattan, made a u-turn in front of her, causing her to crash into the rear of his 2010 Chevrolet Malibu.

Kyle said Duong had been travelling southbound, but made a u-turn using a cross-over in the median near mile marker 100.

Riley County EMS transported Belazco to Mercy Regional Hospital for pain to her knee and wrist. Duong was cited for failure to yield while entering the roadway.
