TUCSON - Tucson ranked no. 9 in the National Coalition for Safer Roads report of the highest number of red-light running deaths.

The coalition analyzed government statistics between 2004 and 2013 and ranked the top 10 American cities with the highest number of red-light running deaths.

Phoenix was ranked no. 2.

The analysis also found that one-in-three Americans know someone who has been hurt or killed in a red-light running crash.

In 2013, more than 698 people were killed and about 127,000 people were injured by red-light running. Driver in urban areas were found to be more likely to be injured by red-light running than any other type of crash.
