A man is in hospital after a crash between a sand truck and a large tow truck early Sunday morning.

Edmonton police said the collision happened at 5:36 a.m. in the intersection of 86 Street and 51 Avenue.

Police said a male driver of one of the vehicles was trapped and had to be extricated by firefighters before being taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
