A pickup failed to stop at a red light at the exact moment an armored truck was passing through the intersection, and the intense impact that followed was caught on camera.

The crash happened at 6:45 a.m. on Market Street and Summer Street Northeast.

Police said a Loomis armored truck was heading eastbound on Market Street when a 2001 Chevrolet pickup heading south on Summer Street attempted to go through a red light.

The pickup slammed into the side of the armored truck, forcing it to tip over onto its side.

The entire collision was caught on camera by a Fox 12 viewer.

Along with the driver, the armored truck had another worker in the back. Police said nobody was hurt in the crash.

The driver of the pickup, identified as 45-year-old John Cozad, was cited by officers on the charge of failure to obey a traffic control device.
