A truck driver was cited for allegedly causing a collision with a Sun Link streetcar in Tucson's downtown area Tuesday afternoon, police say.

The driver failed to yield before making a left turn from Congress Street to South Church Avenue, which caused the collision around noon, according to Officer Ray Smith, a Tucson police spokesman.

The driver sustained minor injuries in the collision. No additional injuries have been reported.

Smith said the streetcar and the truck were damaged in the collision.
