According to a police report, a 1991 Buick Park Avenue attempting a left turn from Redland Road failed to yield the right of way to a 1998 Mack truck. The truck collided with the Buick and ended up on its side. The force of the collision sent the Buick into a 1999 GMC Safari, which was attempting to make a left turn. The truck did not turn over on top of the two vehicles.
