A parking meter attendant was injured in a crash Tuesday at a downtown intersection, Fort Wayne police said.

The driver of a Jeep Liberty was headed south on Clay Street when she ran a stop sign at East Lewis Street, said officer Raquel Foster, a police spokeswoman.

Police were sent to the crash scene about 3:45 p.m. With injuries to her head and face, the parking meter attendant was taken to a hospital in fair condition.

The Jeep driver was not hurt, Foster said.
