PHOENIX -

We now know the name of the woman who died in a car accident near 27th Ave and Southern on Monday.

42-year-old Rosalba Rojas was killed when an SUV chasing a hit-and-run suspect ran a red light, slamming into the van she was in.

Police say that no one in either vehicle was wearing a seatbelt. Rojas was killed and several others were hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries.

This all began when the driver of a Mazda hit an SUV and then fled the scene. The SUV driver was pursuing the Mazda to get the license plate when the crash occurred.

The SUV driver stopped. The Mazda driver has not been located.
