Red-light runner kills driver

The 58-year-old driver of a 1998 Saturn was killed when his car was struck by another vehicle that ran a red light Friday afternoon, according to Las Vegas police.

Police said the Saturn was heading west on Boseck Drive, near Charleston Boulevard, and making a left turn on a green light onto southbound Durango Drive about 1 p.m. when the accident occurred.

A 2009 Jeep Wrangler driven by 18-year-old Kimberly Williams was heading north on Durango approaching the intersection and failed to stop at the red light, police said.

The front of the Jeep collided with the driver’s side of the Saturn.

The driver of the car, whose name and sex were not released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Williams was taken to University Medical Center with minor injuries.
