One victim was later discovered in the burned-out wreckage of another vehicle. Eight people hurt in the wreck, including six kids ranging in age from 13 months to 15 years old.
Shocking new surveillance footage of the crash shows a seemingly normal intersection, with the flow of traffic going at a reasonable pace, before a black Mercedes sedan comes plowing through a red light like a rocket.
