Edge Escape was southbound on Abe and ran a red light at the intersection of Beauregard. A fairly new brown 2015 (or later) Ford F-150 traveling eastbound slammed into the Edge Escape, pushing it into the eastbound traffic on Beauregard.
That eastbound traffic was a Ford F-250 and a Ram 1500 in the inside lane with a sturdy grill guard.

After the ambulance left the scene rushing all occupants of the
Edge Escape to the hospital, two Home Motors flatbed wreckers arrived to transport the brown F-150 and the Edge Escape to the junkyard. Both vehicles had damage that appeared could be repaired.
The intersection was closed for over an hour while firefighters cleaned the pavement and police conducted their crash investigation.
The traffic investigator had incomplete information as to how many people were in the
Edge Escape when it crashed and citations are still pending.
The weather was cloudy, rainy and the roadway wet.
