PHOENIX — A woman in her 90s was killed in a Sunday morning collision caused by a red light runner in west Phoenix, authorities said.
Three vehicles were involved in the wreck around 7:45 a.m. at 67th Avenue and Broadway Road, the Phoenix Police Department said.
Two women were in a white passenger vehicle traveling south on 67th Avenue that entered the intersection on a green light, police said.
