Clearwater Red Light Camera Captures Traffic Crash

(ATTN: Traffic Reporters. Video Clip Available on Clearwater Facebook page at or in attachment)

Recently, our red-light cameras at Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and Belcher Road caught more than just someone running a red light.

A Mazda pickup that was southbound on Belcher Road ran the red light and collided with an eastbound Ford Mustang. Both vehicles were estimated to have been going about 40 mph at impact.

The pickup overturned after the initial impact and crashed into a third vehicle at the intersection. All three drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the truck was cited for running a red light and having no proof of insurance.

The wreck happened at 6:17 a.m. on Jan. 3.
