PHOENIX — One person is dead and several others are hurt after a crash involving an apparent red-light runner in Phoenix Wednesday night.
Phoenix police say the crash occurred near 43rd Avenue and Cactus Road around 6 p.m.
A silver GMC Yukon was reportedly headed eastbound when it drove through a red light, colliding with a silver Toyota Highlander. The Highlander then struck a Toyota Camry and debris also struck a nearby BMW.
A man driving the Highlander was taken to the hospital in critical condition. A man in the passenger seat, 35-year-old Paul Cosma, was pronounced dead at the hospital. Two children were also in the car but were not seriously hurt.
Police say impairment and speed may have been factors for the driver of the Yukon, who is only identified at this time as a woman. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The occupants of the Camry and BMW were not seriously hurt.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
