One Killed, More Injured in Two Overnight Crashes

police at accident sceneOne person is dead and four others were injured in two separate overnight accidents in Phoenix on June 9.

Officials are still investigating an early morning head-on accident reported at 29th Avenue and Union Hills Drive. Three people were taken to the hospital and both drivers, a 46-year-old man and 29-year-old woman, are reportedly in critical condition. The third victim was taken to the hospital as a precaution. According to one news outlet, the woman and her passenger, a 38-year-old man, were both high on drugs, but the police have not confirmed such information.

Police are checking to see if impairment may have played a factor in the collision.

In another accident around 4 a.m. at Greenway and Cave Creek Road, one person was killed in a three-car collision. One victim was ejected from a vehicle while another had to be extricated. One person remains in critical condition. Police do not know what caused the crash, but suspect that one of the drivers may have run a red light and caused the accident.

Though neither of these intersections was included in the list of the most dangerous intersections in Phoenix, the number of collisions caused by red light runners has increased. The most red light runners were reportedly found at 44th and Thomas Road, and Mohave and 7th Street.
