Four cars were involved in a crash on Cascade Road at Spaulding Avenue, according to dispatchers. The crash occurred around 3 p.m. on Jan. 2. 

From the preliminary investigation, it appears that the crash was caused by Cody Willett, 21, who rear-ended his Chevy pick-up into two cars that were waiting at a red light at Spaulding Avenue. After hitting the first two cars, the truck continued, crashing into a third car. 

The driver of the third vehicle, Wilma Debruin, 66, died as a result of injuries sustained during the crash. 

Willett and the drivers of the other two cars received minor injuries. Alcohol and speed are not believed to have been a factor in the crash.
