Coombs also had a green light, but the police report stated he failed to yield the right-of-way to Taylor and he collided with Taylor in the intersection. Belfast Ambulance and Rescue responded to the scene and treated Taylor for complaint of pain in her head. A 10-year-old boy who was with Taylor at the time of the crash sustained no injury, and neither did Coombs.
