All photos: Tim Ehhalt for the Appeal.

Tyler Suehiro was traveling west on Noriega in his silver Toyota pick up truck. As the light turned green and he began to cross Sunset, he says a northbound sedan ran the light and crashed into him.

Appeal staffer Tim Ehhalt passed by moments after the accident — you can see his slideshow above, and watch his brief interview with Suehiro in the video below.

Amazingly, Suehiro escaped without a scratch. The driver and passenger of the sedan were being attended to at the scene, but their injuries did not appear life threatening.
