EPPD: Woman runs red light, resulting in collision with police unit

A Juarez woman ran a red light, causing a police unit to strike the back of the minivan she was driving, El Paso Police say.

The wreck happened at 6:01 a.m. Monday at Kansas and Texas Street downtown.

Police said an investigation revealed Officer W. Wilkinson was driving a 2018 Ford Taurus police unit south on the 200 block of Kansas with two passengers: a fellow police officer Van Buren and a male arrestee.

At the same time, 45-year-old Rosalba Ibarra, of Ciudad Juarez, was driving a 2005 Dodge Caravan west on Texas Street with her passengers, identified only as a 40-year-old woman and a 57-year-old female.

“According to video evidence, Ibarra ran the red light causing the front of the marked police vehicle to strike the right rear of the 2005 Dodge Caravan,” police said in a news release.

Police said the man under arrest was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and later released into police custody. There were no other injuries reported in this collision.

Police issued Ibarra a citation for the red light violation.
