A pickup truck went into oncoming traffic on the intersection of Ninth and Ivy streets Saturday evening, resulting in a four-car pileup.

No one was injured, said Chico Police Officer Peter Durfee.

The incident occurred at approximately 6:20 p.m., he said.

A Dodge pickup truck entered into the intersection going south and was hit head-on by two cars heading east on Ninth Street, he said. The crash caused the truck to spin out and hit a Toyota waiting to cross the intersection from the north side.

Austin Carter, a Chico State student, was involved in the head-on collision.

“I don’t know if he stopped at the stop sign,” Carter said. “It all happened so fast so it was pretty crazy. I’ve been in a crash, but I only got rear ended, so this was a lot different.”

Tow trucks were on scene to move the three cars out of the road because they were all immovable.
