GILBERT, AZ (3TV/CBS5) - A 39-year-old woman was killed in a crash Thursday that police believe was caused by a red-light runner.
The accident happened shortly after noon.
Gilbert police say when they arrived at the scene near Higley Road and the Loop 202, they found a serious injury accident involving a car and a work truck.
Police say the female driver of the car was unconscious, with obvious facial injuries.
She was pulled from the car and given first aid at the scene. Paramedics then transported her to the hospital. But sadly, she did not survive.
Police say that at this point, they believe the 51-year-old male driver of the work truck "failed to stop for a red signal on northbound Higley Road."
Police say he collided with the passenger car as the passenger car drove onto Higley from the westbound freeway off ramp.
The driver of the work truck remained at the scene. Police say he did not suffer any serious injuries.
A male passenger in the car was also transported to the hospital, but his injuries were not believed to be serious.
Police say it has not yet been determined if any criminal charges will be filed.
