I very sorry to hear that. I hope you will all be well soon.

Who drove the third car? And where was the third car before the crash?

For example, I said that the turn arrow was red and the West bound lights were green. I didn’t infer that she ran a red light.
I may be unclear on the layout of the road crossing - at least in 
Europe, if you were stopped by a turn arrow red, you wouldn't be in the 
position where someone running a red light could hit you.
