A concrete mixing truck that ran a red light caused a three-vehicle collision on Bealey Ave this afternoon.

Senior Constable Vaughan Kyne said the concrete mixer failed to stop at a red light at the junction of Bealey Ave and Madras St.

"The concrete mixer ran a red light and crashed into a ute, which then smashed into another ute." 

The driver of the concrete mixer was "in a bit of shock" but no one was seriously injured, he said.

The accident happened about 3.40pm.

The road has since been cleared, with no delays to motorists.
