(AP) — Authorities say a driver who ran a red light has caused a crash that killed four people and two dogs in Lancaster.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says a witness reported that a Toyota Avalon ran a light just after noon Wednesday in the city north of Los Angeles.

The Toyota struck a Volkswagen Jetta. A man and two women were thrown out of the Jetta. Two died at the scene and a third was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The Toyota driver also died at a hospital.

Two dogs in the Jetta also were killed.
