Police offered no new details on the major injury collision that was reported at 9:28 p.m. on Sunday, when officers spotted a black Mercedes sedan traveling eastbound on Ocala Avenue near Capitol Expressway at a "high rate of speed."

Officers said the Mercedes plowed through a red light at the intersection and broadsided another vehicle. The Mercedes rolled over several time colliding with other cars and a light in the process.
