The driver of one of the vehicles said he was driving through the intersection with a green light going about 45-50 mph when another car ran a red light and he hit them. Treyshawn Cooley added he was on his way home from dropping his cousin off.
“When I get to the light, the car comes out. I guess he didn’t see me… my light was green… I’m coming straight and they come out and I hit them,” he said. “First thing I do is take off my seatbelt and I get out of the car and it’s a whole bunch of people and I guess it was a street takeover.”
Further details about the crash or victims were not immediately available.
