A tan Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling southbound on Highway 90 when it is believed the driver ran a red light at the intersection of Normandy. The Tahoe then struck a black Nissan Sentra and the Tahoe rolled over multiple times before coming to a rest on its side. A female occupant of the Tahoe was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Nissan was transported to Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
