According to the Scottsdale Independent, the crash happened on the morning of Sunday, October 6th at approximately 7:24 a.m. when Scottsdale Police was called to the scene of a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Hayden Road and McDowall Road. 

Investigators with the Scottsdale Police Department said in a statement that a 2008 Toyo Scion was traveling eastbound and entered the intersection while traveling at a high rate of speed, failing to stop at the red light.
