Police on the scene tell FOX 17 that a car ran a red light while traveling eastbound on Cascade, and the semi-truck driver tried to avoid the vehicle but still hit it.

No one was injured in the crash.  The semi-truck driver said the car would have been broadsided if he hadn’t swerved and the crash could have been much worse.

Deputies said the semi tipped over and slid several hundred feet after the crash.
