Police say a silver SUV was headed southbound on Ward and went head-on into northbound traffic, hitting a small SUV.

Witnesses say they had called 911 before the crash took place because of the erratic driving of the man who allegedly caused the crash.

“He ran the red light, turning onto 64th and he was actually laughing. He was laughing and drinking out of whatever cup he was drinking (from) with headphones in,” said Sarah Thompson.
