An official with the Wichita Police Department says two drivers remain in serious condition following a crash on early on Christmas Day. 

Officer Paul Cruz said an officer was near the intersection of Pawnee and George Washington Boulevard at around 2 a.m. when he saw a Jeep Cherokee and a Chevy Tahoe collide in the intersection.

Both drivers were ejected and remained in serious condition Tuesday morning.

Officer Cruz said the 29-year-old woman driving the Jeep had the green light when her vehicle was struck by the Tahoe, which was driven by a 26-year-old man. Investigators believe speed was a factor in the crash.
