MERCED — A three-car accident on G Street and Donna Drive on Tuesday resulted in minor injuries to five people, Merced police reported.
The incident happened just after noon, according to Sgt. Alan Ward.
A grey Ford F-150 pickup was traveling east on Donna Drive at G Street. The driver of the Ford had the green light, authorities said.
Meanwhile, a black Toyota Tacoma was traveling north on G Street. The Toyota passed through a red light, crashing into the Ford F-150, and the impact of the crash pushed the Ford F-150 into a white Ford Escape traveling west on Donna Drive, Ward said.
At least one of the vehicles then crashed into a light pole, knocking it down, Ward said.
