---- — An accident involving a pickup truck and a vehicle in the 100 block of South Third Street has reported no injuries according to Clinton Police Sgt. Colin Reid.

At approximately 7:58 a.m. reports of a collision at the alley between First Avenue South and Second Avenue South in Clinton ended with a pickup truck flipping onto its side after being struck by a car going northbound on South Third Street.

The driver of the truck, traveling eastbound, was cited for obstruction of the windshield and side window, because the driver’s windows were fogged up.

According to Reid, both drivers refused medical treatment and the accident “looked more horrific than it actually was.”

Northbound traffic on South Third Street was detoured for approximately 40 minutes while police and emergency crews worked on the scene.
