The accident occurred just after noon on Monday. Expect traffic to be slow around that intersection.

  1. It’s not a truck, it is a toyota.

  2. Really? “Truck hit a pole.”? It just drove sideways? Why didn’t you photograph the other car, you know the one that blew the red light northbound on Cedar and slammed into this poor guy spinning him around and into the pole…… Fantastic reporting, must say.
