EUREKA – A traffic collision forced the closure of a busy Eureka intersection, and witnesses say it was caused when a driver ran a red light.

Just before 11:00 Wednesday morning, the driver of a Honda sedan allegedly ran the red light at the intersection of 7th and H Streets striking not one, but two vehicles. A Toyota hatchback and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Toyota then struck a Subaru parked on H Street.

According to witnesses on scene, one passenger sustained minor injuries. Traffic on the major thoroughfare was diverted for a little less than an hour while crews cleared the roadway. Eureka Police Officers are
