Authorities said that the accident happened at around 11:00 a.m. along Earl Campbell at Old Noonday Road. 42-year-old Ashanti Hallman and 71-year-old Winnifred Hallman were both in a Hyundai Elantra when, according to police, a Jeep Wrangler disregarded a red light.

Running a red light is obviously serious, but the reasons someone may do so can vary quite a bit. Usually, it's just because someone was on their phone. Other times, they were drunk coming from a local bar or restaurant. There are even unusual circumstances that may involve mechanical defects or malfunctioning traffic signals.
Folks often assume a situation is open and shut just because there seems to be an obvious mistake, but without knowing why something happened, it's a lot more challenging for victims and families to reach a satisfactory conclusion like they deserve.
