Traffic along Highway 17 in Washington nearly came to a standstill early Monday afternoon after two cars crashed in the middle of a very busy intersection.
One of the drivers told us he was distracted as he was approaching the Highway 264 and 17 intersection, and may have run the red light. The vehicle was broadsided by another, causing it to flip over.
No one was hurt in the accident. Washington police are still investigating.
