A 14-year-old girl was killed in a car accident in Phoenix Thursday afternoon after police say the car she was riding in ran a red light. 

It happened just before 3 p.m. near Tatum Boulevard and Cave Creek Road.

Witnesses reported that an SUV and a small car had collided, and the impact caused the small silver vehicle to roll over.

There were four occupants in the silver car. As it rolled over, 14-year-old Shelby Faught was ejected. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 21-year-old male driver, and two other occupants, a 19-year-old male and a 16-year-old female, were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.

The SUV was driven by a 53-year-old female.  That person was also taken to a hospital.

Police say both drivers are suspected of impairment. 

Friday night friends and family of Shelby Faught gathered at the crash site for a candlelight vigil. 

Faught was a freshman at Career Success High School. 

Her friend Destinee Rodriguez survived the crash that took Faught's life. She left the hospital to be at the vigil.

"I don't remember feeling any pain until I got into the hospital. As far as that, I'm OK, just not mentally," said Rodriguez.

She says it's Faught's sense of humor she'll remember most. 

A GoFundMe Account has been set up to help with funeral expenses. 

The investigation is ongoing.
