A car accident occurred in Gulfport Monday, April 11 involving a front-end loader construction vehicle.

The accident occurred at just after noon at the intersection of 54th St. S. and Gulfport Blvd. when a gold Ford Taurus struck the front loader head on.

An unnamed woman in her 70s was heading eastbound on Gulfport Boulevard and made a left turn on to northbound 54th Street. There, a yellow bulldozer was sitting at the stop sign facing south on 54th Street.

The woman claims to have been watching oncoming traffic as she was making the turn and took the turn too tight, driving into the front loader, which was filled with dirt.

The driver of the front loader saw the woman coming and attempted to reverse the vehicle, but was still hit by the oncoming car.

No injuries were reported and the woman was cited for careless driving.
