St. Louis Man Killed when Car Runs Red Light

A St. Louis man was killed yesterday when a speeding SUV ran a red light and crashed into the car in which he was a passenger. The driver of the car was also critically injured and taken to the hospital. The 36-year-old driver of the speeding SUV that caused the fatal St. Louis auto accident was uninjured.

Police reported observing the speeding SUV as it ran two red lights before it crashed into the couple’s car at the intersection of Martin Luther King Drive and North Euclid Avenue. St. Louis police arrested the SUV driver. A passenger in the SUV fled the scene but was also arrested shortly after the accident.
