    A local woman is speaking out after her sister was killed in a car crash.

    “It’s heartbreaking. My family (is) hurting,” said Kathy Robinson, the sister of 44-year-old Erica Johnson, who celebrated her birthday less than three weeks ago. 

    Johnson was killed and four others were injured when, the Florida Highway Patrol said, a driver ran a red light Monday night that caused a chain reaction crash on Busch Drive at North Main Street in North Jacksonville.

    “I saw that car. She didn’t stand a chance," said Robinson. “It’s unreal. It’s painful, people running red lights.”

    Troopers said a 70-year-old man was driving the Nissan that hit Johnson and they are investigating the possibility that a medical emergency may have played a role in the crash.

    Robinson said she will miss the mother of two.

    “Erica was a beautiful person. I haven’t been to sleep yet. I need her,” Robinson said.
