AURORA, IN (FOX19) - A semi truck caught fire after a crash Wednesday morning in Aurora.

The crash occurred just after 11 a.m. in front of the Taco Bell on U.S. 50.

Investigators say an eastbound car turned in front of a westbound semi truck as they were both running through a yellow light.

The impact forced the semi truck into the parking lot of the Taco Bell, where the truck then caught fire.

The driver of the car suffered minor injuries and the driver of the semi was not hurt.

The Taco Bell was briefly evacuated while crews put out the semi truck fire.
