    A woman died Saturday morning after running a red light in northwest Harris County, accoring to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

    The victim, Thi Nguyen, was driving a 1997 Toyota sedan southbound along the 11000 block of Bammel North Houston just after 8 a.m. before the accident occurred. Nguyen approached a red light at the Beltway 8 feeder intersection but failed to stop, according to HCSO Deputy P.W. Lillibridge.

    “As the [Nguyen] reached the intersection she allegedly failed to stop for the red light and crossed into the path of a westbound 2003 Toyota Tacoma pick up,” Lillibridge reported. “[Nguyen’s] vehicle was struck broadside by the pick up in the center of the inside westbound lane. Due to the injuries received, the complainant did not show any signs of life on the scene.”

    The case is being investigated by HCSO’s Traffic Enforcement Division.
