Accident shuts down intersection in Santa Maria

A three-vehicle accident sent a woman to the hospital in Santa Maria this morning. That accident happened shortly after 9-30 at the intersection of Broadway and Battles Road.

Witnesses say a truck heading southbound on Broadway failed to stop at a red light. It smashed into an SUV heading Eastbound on Battles Road, pushing it into a jeep.

"We just got hit by a truck we were just pulling out on a green light and it just went through. It hit this poor woman's car first and it wiped her into me," said Matt Knight, who was involved in the accident.

Rescuers removed the woman from her jeep and rushed her to the hospital. She was treated and released.

Police say the truck driver will be cited. The collision shut down the southbound side of the intersection for more than half an hour.
