HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A young boy lost his life after his mother ran a red light while driving, hitting another car and then a pole. The accident happened at the intersection of Uvalde and Highway 90, just after 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

The mother, a 46-year-old woman, was driving a Pontiac. She ran a red light at the intersection and then hit a Scion. The vehicle then spun around and hit a traffic light pole. The 10-year-old boy was then thrown out of the vehicle during the collision.
