Truck Into Light Pole at Fourth & Cedar

It may be hours before the intersection is back to normal after a truck slammed into a light pole at Fourth and Cedar in downtown San Diego.

The bakery supply truck ran a red light around 7:20 a.m. according to San Diego police. 

A Prius traveling southbound collided with the truck. Then, the truck driver lost control and drove into a light pole and hydrant.

The impact of the crash destroyed the traffic light which has caused some slowing for people arriving into downtown from Interstate 5.

A hazmat team was called in to help clean up the diesel fuel leaking from the truck, officials said.

Water crews shut off the valve feeding the toppled hydrant.

No one was injured.
