A woman who called 911 told dispatchers there were three, maybe four vehicles involved.

“It is a horrible accident at the light,” said the woman who told the dispatcher she witnessed the crash. “I think somebody in this little tan car is injured. They have not moved. They haven’t got out and everybody is just standing around the car.”

A maroon 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix going north on North Gettysburg Avenue did not stop at a red light at Prescott Avenue and hit a gold 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt heading west on Prescott Avenue, according to a Dayton police crash report. The impact pushed the vehicles into a blue 2015 Hyundai Sonata traveling south on North Gettysburg that was in the left turn lane.

All three vehicles had disabling damage, according to the report.
