Kim Martinez reports

A green car reportedly ran a red light and was hit by a water truck.

Rescuers had to cut three victims from the green car. Two of those people were unconscious at the time, said Capt. Rob Dugan of the Gilbert Fire Department.

A person who was sitting in back passenger seat, which bore the brunt of the impact, was killed.

The other two victims, one of them with life-threatening injuries, were flown to Maricopa County Medical Center.

The driver of the water truck and the driver of a third vehicle were taken by ground ambulance to area hospitals. Neither suffered life-threatening injuries.

The intersection was closed while police conducted their investigations. It was expected to reopen some time after 9 a.m.
