One person has been taken to hospital after a two vehicle crash at Yale Road and Spadina Avenue.

Police say the driver of a red Dodge Durango SUV ran a red light and hit the front end of a white four-door Mazda Protege.

The front of the Protege was caved in and the driver-side airbag inflated. Emergency responders got the female driver loaded onto a stretcher and took her away in an ambulance. The driver of the SUV was treated at the scene and appeared to be unharmed.

Her truck ended up on the sidewalk, and it's fortunate no one else was hurt. There's a bus-stop within 15 feet of where the truck came to rest, and at a different time of day that section of sidewalk would have been busier.
