Huntsville Police has released new information regarding a three vehicle crash that occurred Monday afternoon.
According to police, the driver of a Chevrolet pickup was driving south on Jordan Lane and attempted to turn left onto Oakwood Avenue on a solid green signal (no green arrow). A large dump truck traveling north on Jordan Lane was also going through the intersection on a solid green signal and was unable to avoid the crash.
After striking the Chevrolet pickup, the dump truck turned on its side and slid into a Huntsville City Transit Bus that was in the lane to turn right from north bound Jordan Lane onto east bound Oakwood Avenue.
Police have determined the driver of the Chevrolet pickup is at fault in the crash because they failed to yield when turning left on a solid green light. No arrests or criminal charges are expected to be made at this time.
