WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- An ice cream truck driver got a citation after he hit a Winston-Salem Police Department recruitment vehicle with a yellow Schwan's ice-cream truck and then crashed into two stationary vehicles at 9:21 p.m. on Wednesday, according to a Winston-Salem Police Department news release.

The 33-year-old ice cream truck driver was cited for fail to stop at steady red light and failure to reduce speed, police say.

The release says the crash happened when the ice-cream truck, which ran a red light going east on Silas Creek, hit the police car, which was going north on Peters Creek.

The crash caused them to collide with a Ford truck and a Toyota Camry that were in the left turn lanes.

The four driversĀ  injured in the wreck were taken to local medical facilities for treatment of minor injuries, police say.

No passengers were injured.

The intersection of Peters Creek Parkway and Silas Creek Parkway had significant closures for around 90 minutes, the release says.
