According to an Osceola police report, Shelli Neinas of Osceola was traveling westbound on Highway 34/McLane Street in a 2011 Ford Edge, and had a green light. At the same time, Jaxsyn Boswell, Osceola, was traveling eastbound on Highway 34/McLane Street in a 2011 Buick, and was making a left turn at the stop lights north onto Warren Avenue, also with a green light.
