A teenage driver was killed after running a red light in a crash that left seven other people injured, California authorities said.

A 17-year-old boy was driving a Lexus sedan north down Moreno Beach Drive in Moreno Valley and ran a red light at the intersection with Cactus Avenue on Sunday, Oct. 2, according to a news release from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

The teenager’s car crashed into a Honda minivan that was traveling eastbound on Cactus Avenue, the release said.

The collision caused the teenager’s car to crash into a “metal traffic light pole,” the sheriff’s department said.

“It is unknown at this time if drugs and/or alcohol were a factor in this collision,” the sheriff’s department said.

The teenage driver died at the scene, deputies said, and a “minor female passenger” who was riding with him was taken to the hospital with “severe traumatic injuries.”

The 59-year-old driver of the minivan and five passengers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, the sheriff’s department said.

Deputies said they would reveal the identities of those involved after “further investigation and notification of next of kin.”

Moreno Valley is about 95 miles northeast of San Diego.
