According to the Monett Police Department, an eastbound Toyota Tacoma pickup, shown above, continued through the traffic light after the light had turned, having the view blocked by a parallel tractor trailer. A southbound Trans Am collided with the front end of the pickup.
Powder disbursed by an inflating air bag in the pickup prompted the initial report of a possible fire.
The accident resulted in a passenger in the pickup receiving injuries and being taken to Cox Monett Hospital for treatment. A ticket was issued to the pickup driver for violating a red light.
