Driver Crashes into Brick Fence

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick Police said a man went to the hospital after he drove a car into a brick fence.

Police said the 20-year-old driver crashed near the intersection of Vancouver Street and Kennewick Avenue. 

Police said he ran a red light, swerved to avoid hitting a mini-van and then crashed.   

The driver told police he did not see the light turn red because he was answering his cell phone. He had minor injuries. 

Witnesses said it is a miracle that no one was hurt because many people walk along the road.  

Police said the driver that hit the wall would be cited for running the red light.
