WRECKDECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – A busy intersection was shut down overnight as Decatur police investigated a wreck.

It happened at the intersection of Cedar Street and Spring Avenue SW. Police say a car was driving east on Cedar Street just before 10 p.m. Wednesday when it ran the stop sign and plowed into a pickup truck.

The car went through two yards, hitting a parked car in a driveway and pushing that car into a house.

The driver was taken to Decatur Morgan Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The four people in the truck were not injured.

Police had to shut down the intersection for more than three hours to investigate. It has since reopened.
