A 26-year-old woman died and four other people — including three children — were injured in a crash at a suburban St. Louis intersection, police said.
The crash happened around 6 p.m. Sunday in Jennings, just north of St. Louis, when a car ran a red light and hit another car driven by Zschasmene Thomas, 26, police said.
Thomas was thrown from the car and died at the scene, investigators said, while a man and three children who were passengers in the woman’s car were taken to hospitals for injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Police initially reported there were three passengers in the car but clarified Monday that there were four.
Police said the driver of the car that ran the red light and a passenger in that car were not seriously injured.
