A crash in the 2400 block of North Shadeland Ave. sent one man to the hospital Thursday morning.

The Indianapolis Fire Department was called to the scene shortly before 9:00 am.

IFD says Alex Frigge, 47, was stopped at a northbound red light in a Trinity Metals truck with a full dumpster on board when a GMC Sierra 4X4 rear-ended his vehicle. The driver of the Sierra, Jason Adams, had to be extricated from his vehicle. He was taken by ambulance to Wishard Hospital to be checked out. Frigge declined medical care.

Firefighters had to stabilize the truck before freeing Adams. It took about ten minutes to extricate him. In all, ten IFD units responded.

The Indianapolis Metro Police Department is investigating.
