A 4-year-old girl died late Tuesday from injuries sustained in an east side crash, the second person killed in the wreck, police said.

Caia Roden, 4, was riding in a Lexus sedan about 8:45 a.m. when it was hit by a man driving a Chevy Tahoe at the intersection of South Harrison Road, according to a Tucson Police Department news release.

A passenger in the Lexus, 55-year-old Lorrie Schlect, died Tuesday shortly after the crash, police said.

Investigators have determined the driver of the Tahoe, 29-year-old Richard Kinner, ran a red light as he headed south on Harrison, department spokesman Officer Charles Rydzak said.

Kinner, who suffered serious injuries in the crash, was cited for failure to stop for a red light, failure to wear a seat belt and driving with s suspended license, Rydzak said.

The driver of the Lexus, a 33-year-old woman who is nine months pregnant, suffered life-threatening injuries in the crash and remains at a local hospital, police said.
