PHOENIX (AP) - A 21-year-old man has been arrested following a crash that killed a pregnant woman and critically injured her unborn son.

Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson tells the Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/N9Qgi7 ) that Rigoberto Gonzales is in custody on suspicion of second-degree murder and aggravated assault.
Police say Gonzalez ran a red light in Phoenix last week, hitting a car driven by 24-year-old Karlisha Randolph and killing her. Randolph was nine months pregnant and had her mother and two sons in the car. Her passengers survived, and Randolph's baby was delivered successfully.
Thompson says another 45-year-old man who drove past traffic barricades at the scene and crashed into two police vehicles also has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and criminal damage.
