A 2004 Ford van was attempting to cross from Harden Hill Road over to Whitehall Road with the green traffic signal when a 2012 Hyundai Sonata drove through the red light traveling north on Main Street. After striking the side of the Hyundai, the Ford van then hit a 2013 Chevrolet Express van, which was attempting to exit Whitehall Road onto Main Street.
The driver of the Hyundai was slightly injured. Police charged a 55-year-old Commerce man with running a red light.
