A 21-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault after intentionally rear-ending a vehicle, critically injuring one man, police said.

A 56-year-old man was stopped at Lincoln and Market waiting for a green light at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Officer Charley Davidson said Thursday.

A Toyota occupied by three men – ages 31, 52, and 56 – was stopped behind him.

The 21-year-old woman drove into the back of the Toyota, causing that car to go into the first stopped vehicle.
