A 90-year-old woman was injured after a two-car collision in Lodi involving a Loomis armored truck shortly after noon on Thursday. The crash also prevented the truck from making a delivery to a Lodi bank.
Hilda Mantz, who was in a Dodge Grand Caravan, was making a left turn from Delores Street onto South Cherokee Lane when her vehicle was hit on the driver's side by the Loomis armored truck traveling north, according to Lodi police.
Mantz was taken to Lodi Memorial Hospital with lacerations, but she was conscious and coherent at the scene, police said. The driver and passenger of the armored vehicle were not injured.
Northbound traffic on Cherokee Lane was diverted to Poplar Street while emergency crews were on scene.
The crash affected at least one Lodi bank. Phil Felde, vice president of Bank of Agriculture and Commerce, said that the accident prevented Loomis from delivering some documents on Thursday. It wasn't a critical delay from the bank's perspective because the delivery can be made today.
