SPOKANE, Wash.-- A driver flipped their car early Tuesday after being blinded by the sun and failing to stop at a traffic signal.

Spokane Police said the driver ran a red light at the intersection of Mission and Ruby.  The car smashed into the driver’s side of an oncoming car. 

The impact forced one of the cars to flip, landing on the top.  However, there were no injuries.

The intersection was blocked for about 30 minutes while crews cleared the scene.  The driver was cited for failure to yield to a traffic signal.
