November 8, 2018- A red light runner caused a deadly crash earlier this week. A work truck hit a car in Gilbert, AZ between the Loop 22 and Higley Road. The driver of the car, a 39-year-old woman, drove onto Higley from the westbound freeway off ramp. The collision happened as the driver of the work truck, a 51-year-old man, did not stop at the red light signal on northbound Higley Road.
The male driver did remain on the scene, without needing any serious medication attention. However, the woman remained unconscious with clear facial injuries. She received first aid and CPR immediately, and then was moved by paramedics to a nearby hospital. Here, she sadly passed away.
