ALBUQUERQUE, NM — A driver ran a red light at a northwest Albuquerque intersection Saturday, which resulted in a crash and the death of a another person, according to KOAT.

The fatal collision unfolded on Coors Boulevard Northwest at Sevilla Avenue Northwest, in the La Luz Del Sol neighborhood.

Albuquerque Police said a Ford Mustang, identified as Isaiah Sena, was heading northbound on Coors Boulevard when it approached another vehicle. Sena, who, according to the driver of that other vehicle, appeared like he wanted to race, drove past the second vehicle.

Moments after running a red light at the intersection, the Mustang collided with a Ford Edge that was turning left onto southbound Coors Boulevard during a green light. The impact of the crash sent both cars spinning into southbound Coors Boulevard.
