Officers are on the scene of a two vehicle collision at 15th and Jefferson. Motorists are advised to avoid the area due to road closures and potential traffic issues. 

   What happened: Witnesses tell police a pickup truck a red light and struck a SUV in the intersection. That vehicle then struck a power pole that broke. The power pole is suspended by power lines from adjacent poles.The driver of the pickup truck will be cited for running the stop sign. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the incident and no one is being transported to the hospital. For the safety of the public the intersection will be closed for some time while Idaho Power experts deal with the down lines. The intersection is closed at this time and officers expect it to remain closed for several hours.
