NEW BRITAIN - A city fire utility pickup truck was involved in an accident that resulted in minor injuries Monday afternoon.

The accident happened before 2 p.m.

Police said a Chevrolet Sonic ran through a four-way intersection at Buell and Glen streets as it was heading west.

The hatchback, driven by a female, clipped the pickup, a Ford F-150, that was heading north on Glen Street, police said. The hatchback kept driving and hit a tree before it rolled back down to the north side of the intersection, police said.

Both drivers, the lone occupants of each, were transported to the hospital as a precaution, police said.

Fluids leaking from the hatchback could be seen on the sidewalk and a small piece of debris from it could be seen in the yard the tree was in. The driver side airbag was deployed.

Both cars were towed away from the scene.
