TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One person was taken to the hospital as a precaution after two vehicles collided Sunday just after noon at East Irvington and South Houghton roads, causing a fire with billowing black smoke that was visible from far away.

The road was closed for about an hour while the scene was cleared, said Tucson Police Department Sgt. Kimberly Bay, a department spokeswoman.

The crash looked worse than it was, she said, adding that thankfully the driver of the vehicle that caught fire was no longer inside when it burst into flame.
