At the time of the crash, the driver of the Saturn was westbound on Telegraph Street as the Honda was northbound on 3050 East approaching the intersection, Washington City Police Spokesman Ed Kantor said.

“The Honda entered the intersection on a green light,” Kantor said. “The Saturn entered the intersection on a red light and struck the Honda.”

The driver of the Saturn left the scene, Kantor said.

The driver of the Honda did not report any injuries.

The Saturn’s bumper fell off during the crash, allowing police to obtain license plate information.

“They have identified the vehicle owner from license plate information on the Saturn,” Kantor said. “But the investigation is still continuing to determine who was driving it at that time.”

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement and may not contain the full scope of findings.

      I see car after car running through the red left turn arrows, not to mention no speed control at all on Telegraph st. If you do the speed limit, you get run over or cars are 3′ off your rear bumper.
