Authorities said the driver of a 2015 Ford Mustang was traveling northbound on Orange Avenue when he ran a red light at 4th Street, striking a 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser traveling eastbound on 4th Street on a green light, LBPD spokesman Brad Johnson said. The SUV flipped over when it hit and slid into a 2001 Chevy pick-up truck that was in the left hand turn lane on 4th Street, preparing to turn south onto Orange Avenue.

Officers were called to the scene at 12:30PM. Upon arrival, they shut down traffic on 4th Street in both directions, as well as traffic southbound on Orange Avenue.
