The occupants of the two vehicles suffered bruises and scrapes, but were otherwise uninjured.
The crash occurred at about 11:45 a.m.
Police said a white van traveling west on Robbins ran a red light at Beechtree and struck a southbound Jeep. The impact spun the Jeep around, causing the vehicles to hit again before coming to rest in the road and against a utility pole.
The driver of the van said she observed an unusual truck as she approached the intersection, told her children to look, then looked back and saw that the light was red. The woman said she slammed on her brakes but couldn’t avoid hitting the Jeep.
The driver of the Jeep said he saw the van coming on fast, tried to swerve but couldn’t get out of the way.
All of the people involved sought their own treatment for injuries.
