Drivers Escape Injury as Car Crashes Into Truck & Trailer at Signal Damaged Busy Intersection
SAN ANGELO, TX -- The drivers of two vehicles that crashed at Knickerbocker Rd. and Valley View Blvd. escaped serious injury Tuesday afternoon.
According to investigating San Angelo Police Officers at the scene, a silver passenger car was southbound on Knickerbocker Rd. when the driver disregarded the flashing red light and crashed into a red Ford F-250 pulling a trailer.
The impact pushed the F-250 into the other side of Valley View Blvd. The crash deployed the airbags in the passenger car and heavily damaged the rear axle on the F-250.
No one was seriously injured.
The driver of the passenger car was issued a citation for failure to yield the right of way.
The signal light at the busy intersection near Bentwood was knocked down last week when an oversized load clipped the signal light pole. City workers say the signal light will be out for about a month.
