Three-car collision in Fresno, Calif., with rollover, disrupts traffic

A three-car collision with a rollover in Fresno west of Highway 99 disrupted traffic around noon Tuesday.

The collision happened at 12:20 p.m. on West Ashlan Avenue and North Parkway Drive, along southbound Highway 99.

Fresno Police spokesman Felipe Uribe said a Toyota Camry heading west on Ashlan ran a red light and collided with a Kia Spectra and a Honda Civic.

One person from the Camry and two from the Spectra were taken to hospital with minor injuries, Uribe said.

Westbound traffic had to be rerouted onto Parkway while the collision was investigated.

DUI or alcohol are not considered a factor and no charges are pending, Uribe said.

The roadway was cleared shortly before 1:30 p.m.
