A Lexus dealer who died last week in a crash with a car driven by a customer died of injuries suffered in the collision, police said Monday.
Authorities said the driver of the Toyota Camry, 26-year-old William Dwayne Moore, of Dayton, Ohio, drove through a red light at about 8:45 p.m.
ET Monday, hit a curb and then went into the grassy area on the left side of the road, according to Dayton police Sgt. Robert Anderson.
The Camry struck the driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene, Anderson said.
Police said Moore was a Lexus Dealer and a driver of Lexus SUVs.
A woman who lives next door to Moore’s house said she saw the car go through a stop sign, but was not sure what the crash might have been about.
“It’s pretty scary,” said the woman, who asked that her name not be used.
“It’s sad to see somebody die in that situation.
But at the same time, it’s good news.”
Police said the Camry’s passenger, 23-year, William Darryl Moore of Dayton was taken to a local hospital for treatment of head injuries and was in stable condition.
He was driving with the Camys license plate BQ4JQ.
Police did not release the driver’s name or say whether he was arrested.
Police said they are looking into the possibility that the Camrys was stolen.
