A grey Chevy pickup truck driven by a 24 year old male was eastbound on Grand Avenue. A dark colored SUV driven by a 17 year old female was also eastbound on Grand Avenue in the adjoining lane.

The Chevy pickup attempted to change lanes into the lane occupied by the SUV. The pickup impacted the SUV, causing the driver of the SUV to lose control.
