One driver was sent to the hospital Wednesday morning after broadsiding another vehicle at Ashby and Telegraph avenues, authorities said.

Police got a report of an overturned vehicle in the South Berkeley intersection shortly before 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, said Officer Jennifer Coats, Berkeley Police Department spokeswoman, via email.

Coats said one driver had been westbound on Ashby turning left onto southbound Telegraph when another driver struck him.

Coats said an oncoming vehicle, eastbound on Ashby, broadsided the man’s vehicle, and caused it to turn over and strike a third vehicle.


Police said the impact of the collision sent the eastbound vehicle into a fourth vehicle.

The driver from the eastbound vehicle was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No additional information was available.
