Delivery truck hits Bankers Hill condo building, fire hydrant in San Diego

SAN DIEGO - A large delivery truck crashed into the side of a multiple level condominium building in Bankers Hill early Friday morning, authorities said.

The crash at Fourth Avenue and Cedar Street was reported at 7:18 a.m., according to a San Diego fire-rescue dispatcher.

The truck, which belonged to a bakery, also struck a traffic light pole located directly in front of the building, causing the pole to topple over.

There were no reported injuries.

According to police, the truck driver ran a red light and hit a Toyota Prius before slamming into the corner of the building.

10News Reporter Ashlee DeMartino spoke to the driver of the Prius. She said she is OK, but still shaken up. 

Officers said the intersection will remain closed until a building inspector can survey the structural damage to the building and the truck can be moved.

Officers said traffic in the area is backed up, but the closure has not caused a major impact.

The water line feeding to the fire hydrant was turned off and no flooding was reported.

Police said there are no criminal charges pending at this point for the driver.
