Sunlight May Have Caused Accident on Carroll Lane

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A driver said that the bright morning sun was to blame for her running a red light and hitting another car on Tuesday.

The accident happened at the intersection of Carroll Lane and Holly just before 9:30 a.m. Investigators said the driver of a Chevy Malibu ran the red light and struck a small truck as it was entering the intersection.

According to the Corpus Christi Police Department, the driver of the Malibu said she could not see the light signal because the sun was in her eyes.

"Sunlight is a factor sometimes at these intersections," CCPD Senior Officer Luis Flores said. "Use sunglasses if needed."

The driver of the truck was taken to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital, and the driver of the Malibu was cited for running the red light.
