SOUTH FAIRMOUNT, OH (FOX19) -

A pedestrian is dead after he was pinned against wall during a crash on South Fairmount on Wednesday. 

According to investigators, Zackarie Magambo was traveling westbound on Queen City Ave. in a minivan when he failed to stop at a red light and struck a vehicle driven by Robert Bonnici at the intersection of Queen City and Harrison avenues. 

Magambo's vehicle veered off to the left side of Harrison Ave. where it struck a utility pole, two pedestrians and a building, according to the Cincinnati Police Department.  

Wendell Allen Reed, who was sitting on a bench at a bus stop, was struck and pinned against a building wall after the minivan went onto the sidewalk, according to police.

Reed, 55, was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries. 

The second pedestrian, Earl Howard, sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene. 

A passenger in Magambo's minivan, Daniel Ndayisenga, 28, suffered minor injuries and was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. 
The two drivers were not injured in the crash. 

Investigators say impairment is not a factor in the crash. Speed is undetermined at this time. 

People who work near the intersection of Queen City and Harrison avenues say it’s dangerous.

“Well over a couple of hundred. I’ve worked there for 10 years now straight. You hear that squeal, you stand up and look," said Vince Morano.

The Cincinnati Traffic Unit is continuing the investigation.
