Accident closes intersection

The intersection at Central and Goode avenues was closed for several hours Sunday morning after a vehicle struck a utility box, cutting power to the traffic signals.

At about 9:15 a.m., a taxicab traveling north on Central Avenue and an Audi sedan traveling west on Goode Avenue collided, said Glendale Police Officer Vincent Jackson. The Audi knocked over a utility box before coming to rest alongside an office building.

The driver of the Audi, a 24-year-old woman from Glendale, was taken to Glendale Adventist Hospital with minor injuries, Jackson said. The taxicab driver, a 50-year-old man from Glendale, was unharmed.

"There is a discrepancy right now about who went through a red light and who went through a green light," Jackson said. "As the two entered the intersection, they collided head on."

Traffic within a one-block radius of the intersection was closed as firefighters cleared debris from the road, and utility workers tried to restore power to the intersection. Traffic on Central Avenue was restored by noon, but traffic on Goode Avenue remained restricted into the afternoon.
