ST. LOUIS  •  The driver of a car is dead and another man was critically injured after two vehicles collided at an intersection in St. Louis late Monday.

The cars collided at Page Boulevard and North Vandeventer Avenue after one driver ran a red light, police said.

Luss Bradford, 58, died in the crash. He lived in the 4600 block of Roxie Street in Northwoods.

A 28-year-old man was in critical but stable condition at a hospital, police say. 

The man who survived the crash is the one who caused it by running a red light, said Leah K. Freeman, a police department spokeswoman. That man, whose name was not released, had been driving east on Page in a Mazda 3. He sideswiped a Pontiac Sunfire but continued going east through a red light at the intersection at Vandeventer.

His car hit a Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Bradford, who had been going north on Vandeventer, and then struck a parked Ford Econoline 150. Bradford was thrown from his car and died at the scene.

The driver of the Mazda was trapped in his car. Rescuers pulled him from the wreckage and took him to a hospital.

A woman in the car that was sideswiped was uninjured, police say.
