A passenger died in a crash at a Rancho Bernardo intersection Saturday

SAN DIEGO — A 71-year-old sedan passenger died Saturday evening after a collision with a Jeep at a Rancho Bernardo intersection.

The sedan driver, a 72-year-old man, ran a red arrow light while making a left turn from westbound Rancho Bernardo Road to Acena Drive, San Diego police said.

A 17-year-old boy driving a Jeep eastbound had the green light as he entered the intersection. The Jeep broadsided the passenger side of the other vehicle, a Toyota Avalon, about 2 p.m., police Officer Robert Heims said.

The passenger door was caved in from the impact. The woman suffered major injuries and later died at a hospital.

The two drivers and a 17-year-old girl in the Jeep complained of pain, Heims said. The older man was taken to a hospital.
