PALMDALE – A Lancaster woman was killed Friday when she ran a red light and her compact station wagon was hit by a big rig, California Highway Patrol officials said. The 62-year-old woman, whose name was not immediately made public, died in the wreckage of her Mercury Tracer, which was shoved more than 80 feet by the impact. Witnesses told investigators the station wagon drove southbound through the intersection of Avenue N and 20th Street West without stopping for the red light, officials said. The big rig, a Freightliner pulling two hopper trailers, was heading east at about 45 mph when the station wagon drove directly in front of it, officials said. last_img
