One person was taken to the hospital after a three-vehicle crash near Sixth Street and Rockledge Road Thursday morning.

Lawrence police spokesman Sgt. Matt Sarna said a 21-year-old man driving a 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse was heading south on Rockledge just after 10 a.m. Thursday, when he ran the red light at Sixth.

He struck a truck that was heading east on Sixth in the inside lane, that then crashed into another truck in the outside lane.

The driver of the Mitsubishi was taken to the hospital for a possible broken wrist. Sarna said the Lawrence man was cited for a red light violation.

One of the pickup truck drivers suffered minor head injuries, but police said he was not transported to the hospital. The other driver was not injured.
