PHOENIX (KSAZ) -  A 52-year-old man driving a scooter was killed early Saturday morning near Broadway and Ellsworth.

A spokesperson for Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says a red sedan was heading down Broadway at about 7:40am Saturday when the driver failed to stop for a red light.  The sedan crashed into a scooter that was waiting in the median lane, and then wound up crashing into a light pole.
