FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- One person was hospitalized after a crash involving a semi-truck in Visalia on Monday morning.

The crash happened around 5:15 am on Walnut Avenue and Demaree Street.

Visalia police say the driver of a Frito-Lay truck was eastbound on Walnut when they ran a red light and hit a Dodge Challenger.

Witness photos from the crash show the semi-truck crashed on its side.

The truck driver was taken to Kaweah Health Medical Center with minor injuries.

The crash caused part of Walnut Avenue and Demaree to be shut down on Monday morning. The streets have since reopened.
