A minivan crashed through a metal fence on a corner property during the collision and stopped just feet away from the house.

Police at the scene reported minor injuries to the people involved in both vehicles.

The driver's side of the minivan was impacted, while the front end of the car appeared to be damaged heavily.

They don't know which driver was trying to beat the yellow light.

Ynattrib... judging by the picture, the car collided with the van, which continued on and crashed through the fence. Film at 11.

The van was heading to Wellington from the mall.....the car ran a red light and hit the van pushing it into the yard and the iron fence. No serious injuries.

When are they going to change the name of Albert St. to Take Your Chances Driving On This St. Ave? There are so many accidents on this street lately. What's going on there folks? Contrary to belief, a YELLOW light does NOT mean *GO FASTER*. Don't be in such a hurry to beat the light or to get where you're going. The final destination may not be exactly as you planned it. Slow down and be considerate and not so much in a rush. Save a life, be it yours or someone else's.

Vehicles running red lights in this City is far too common. Wake the F*%$ up SSM. Put down the Timmies, the Lap Dog, the texting (more people than you think) the Cell. It's driving. Not something you do while eating lunch.
