A 60-year-old woman died Tuesday after another driver ran a red light, then slammed into the woman’s car in the south valley.
The crash happened about 1:50 p.m. on South Decatur Boulevard, just north of Harmon Avenue, police said.
The 60-year-old woman was headed east on University Avenue, passing through the Decatur intersection, when a 21-year-old woman driving south on Decatur failed to stop at a red light.
The 21-year-old woman’s SUV plowed into the 60-year-old woman’s car. The 60-year-old was taken to University Medical Center’s trauma unit, where she later died.
The 21-year-old suffered minor injuries and remained at the scene.
The crash remains under investigation. The county coroner’s office will identify the woman who died once her family has been notified.
