CINCINNATI -- The driver of a snowplow involved in a weekend accident that left two teens injured may have run a stop sign.

Late Saturday afternoon, the driver of the snowplow approached the stop sign at the corner of Boudinot and Daytona avenues going five miles per hour, but failed to stop, police said in a release.

As 50-year-old Sheila Davis rolled through the intersection, she collided with a 2012 Toyota Camry. That sedan carried a 16-year-old male and a 15-year-old female, whose names were not immediately released. Upon impact, one teen became trapped inside the car, and had to be freed on scene.

An official on scene Saturday said both teens suffered "serious to life-threatening injuries" and were both taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. By 7:15 p.m., they had been upgraded to "stable condition" and were expected to recover. Both teens were wearing their safety belts.

Davis was held responsible for the accident, officials said, because she didn't have the right of way at the stop sign.

She was not hurt in the crash.
