Police say a 48-year-old Warrensville Heights man was headed south on Northfield Road around 9:45 p.m. when he ran a red light at the intersection with Berwyn Street.

His car struck a second car with a 30-year-old mother and her four children inside.

The mother, Maria Thorpe, and two of her children, Zariah Roberts, 8, and Zayanah Roberts, 5, died from the crash.
