FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Police say a 45-year-old woman was under the influence of methamphetamine and driving a stolen SUV when she ran a red light and triggered a collision that killed a Clovis man Thursday in northeast Fresno.

The Fresno Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1sI7MyD) that Matthew Harkenrider, 26, was on his way to work at Community Regional Medical Center in downtown Fresno, where he was a radiology technician. He died at the scene.

Sgt. Richard Tucker says a Fresno officer saw the northbound Kia Sorento driven by Roberta Lynn Soto run the red light at Fresno Street.

Tucker says Soto faces charges of felony vehicular manslaughter, driving a stolen vehicle, felony driving under the influence and possession of methamphetamine. He says Soto’s driver’s license was suspended in 2012.
