HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A 30-year-old woman who was badly hurt in a crash that killed six other people in downtown Houston died on Monday, according to police.

The major crash happened back in November on Fannin Street.

Christian Herrera was driving a Chrysler 300 southbound on Fannin. At that time, officers said Herrera hit Holliday's SUV after running a red light southbound on Fannin.

Investigators said both drivers died after losing control and fatally striking a homeless man, Frank Robinson, who was at the underpass.

Three former University of Houston players, D.J. Hayden, Zach McMillian, and Ralph Oragwu, were also in the car and died in the crash.

One man survived the crash and is continuing to recover.
