    The crash on Wednesday morning sent one car onto its side.

    Emergency crews in Mission Valley were forced to use the jaws of life to rescue a person trapped after an accident Wednesday morning.

    The crash happened at about 8:40 a.m. on Mission Center Road and Camino de la Reina, according to the San Diego Fire Department.

    Authorities said one car ran a red light, crashing into another vehicle.

    The car struck by the alleged red light-runner rolled onto its side, trapping the person inside the car. Fire personnel determined that it would be safer to cut the person out of the car, as opposed to turning the car upright.

    The trapped driver sustained minor injuries, according to officials.

    The crash was not rain-related, an official with the San Diego Fire Department said.
