    One person is dead after a driver ran a red light, leading to a serious crash in West Philadelphia Saturday night.

    A gray Camaro and blue Buick were travelling eastbound on Chestnut Street near 58th Street around 6:30 p.m. when the two vehicles struck a silver Nissan Altima that ran a red light, according to reports.

    Officials confirm the Nisan's driver, a 53-year-old female, was pronounced dead at 7:30 p.m. at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

    The Nissan was also carrying a 9-year-old passenger, who suffered an injury to her right arm. She has been transported to the Children's Hospital and is in stable condition.

    A 27-year-old male, who was driving the Camaro, suffered injuries to his neck and back, as well as a gash on his head, according to authorities.

    Medics transported the man to HUP, where he is in stable condition.

    No arrests have been made and police say the crash was not a result of a DUI.
