A tow-truck driver tries to hook up a car Friday that was involved in a car accident at the corner of Second Street and Arizona Avenue. Police said the 89-year-old driver ran a red light at the intersection, collided with another car and then proceeded onto the Second Street sidewalk, striking a female pedestrian, who held onto the hood for several feet before the car hit a tree and stopped. The woman, in her 20s, was conscious but was taken to a hospital for treatment. Second Street and Arizona Avenue were closed for a couple of blocks from roughly 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The site of the crash and age of the driver reminded some bystanders of the deadly Farmers' Market crash of 2003 in which 10 people were killed.
