Two motorists were involved in a collision Wednesday afternoon just outside of the CSUN campus.

No CSUN students were involved in the accident, which occurred at about 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Darby Avenue and Nordhoff Street.

Don Hackman, 58, was driving his 1970 black Chevy truck westbound and waiting to turn left onto Darby Avenue when Pierce Collge student Raymond Aladadyen, 18, driving his 2008 white Nissan Altima, struck Hackman as he was turning.

Both drivers were alone in their cars, which sustained damage to their noses.

Hackman was taken to Northridge Medical Center for minor cuts and bruises.

Suzie Napoles, 20, said she stopped to check on the drivers and called 911 after she had noticed Hackman bleeding from his forehead.

The Los Angeles Fire Department arrived on the scene about 10 minutes later, blocking eastbound traffic on Nordhoff and instead diverting it through Darby Avenue.
