A 57-year-old Galt woman was killed on Saturday after being hit by a car that reportedly ran a red light in North Stockton, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The woman, whose name had not been disclosed as of Sunday afternoon, was driving west at 55 to 60 mph on Eight Mile Road across West Lane at 12:10 p.m. when a 69-year-old Stockton woman ran a red light while crossing the intersection, according to a CHP report. The Stockton woman was driving north on West Lane at an unknown rate of speed.
The front end of the Stockton woman’s car, a 2005 Dodge, collided with the driver’s side of the Galt woman’s 1997 Honda, according to the report. The Honda stopped in a westerly direction across two lanes of southbound West Lane, just north of Eight Mile Road.
The Galt woman was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Stockton, where she was pronounced dead.
Alcohol was not a factor in the collision, according to the CHP report.
