A car crash at the intersection of Ridge Avenue and Greenleaf Street on Wednesday afternoon left one driver with minor injuries, police said.

A female Evanston resident driving south on Ridge before 1 p.m. Wednesday crashed into another vehicle in the intersection after running a red light, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The accident resulted in brief road closures that have since been cleared, Parrott said.

The other driver, also an Evanston resident, was driving westbound on Greenleaf at the time of the accident, Parrott said.

The driver who ran the red light received a citation, Parrott said.
