SAN DIEGO — A messy crash early Wednesday morning sent one driver to the hospital. The crash happened at Kearny Villa Road and Balboa Avenue around 6:00 a.m.

According to witnesses, the driver of a pick-up truck ran a red light and T-boned the driver of a sedan.

The driver of the pick-up truck remained at the scene. He was not hurt. It's unclear if he faces any charges.
