WASHINGTON, D.C. (WDTN) – Hundreds of people are killed and thousands more injured each year when a driver runs a red light and causes an accident.

That is why a national group is sponsoring Stop on Red Week, a campaign for public safety.

The National Coalition for Safer Roads released new analysis Wednesday of the latest government data.

It lists the cities that see the most red-light related deaths.

Houston, Texas is followed by Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Chicago to round out the top five.

You can map out the red light deaths in the Miami Valley to see which intersections have the most problems.

It tracks red-light related crashes from 2004 to 2013.
