— At least two women were injured in a two-vehicle collision at 22nd and Arline streets Tuesday afternoon, said Officer Richard Brown of the Muskogee Police Department.

Darlene Willmon, 56, and Rebecca Steward, 30, both of Muskogee, were taken by ambulance to EASTAR Health System. The women were transported with non-life threatening injuries, said a spokeswoman for the Muskogee County Emergency Medical Service.

Brown said a white Kia Sorento, driven by Willmon, was driving westbound on Arline when it crossed the center line and struck a brown Chevrolet Malibu being driven eastbound on Arline by Steward.

It is unknown whether the occupants of the vehicles were wearing their seat belts. Both vehicles had airbags, and both deployed.
