HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. -- A man claims the glare from the sun caused him to be unable to see an intersection, leading to a crash that killed a woman.

The crash happened around 8 a.m. Saturday, near the intersection of State Road 32 and Gray Road.

Police say a red GMC Sierra pick-up truck was traveling eastbound on State Road 32 when it ran a red light and crashed into a silver Honda Accord, driven by Jennifer Grillo, 45, Fishers.

The driver of the Sierra told police the sun glare was in his eyes, and he couldn't see the Accord, nor the color of the light at the intersection.

Grillo was pronounced dead at the scene.
