GLENDALE, AZ – Two teenagers were killed after being involved in a multi-vehicle accident in Glendale this weekend, according to information from CBS 5 News.
The collision occurred near the intersection of Bell Road and 67th Avenue at about 8:45 p.m. Saturday, as 19-year-old Joseph Daniel Saiz was reported driving a Ford Mustang at a high rate of speed without his headlights.
The driver of a Honda Civic attempting to make a left turn then crashed into the back of the Mustang. The impact pushed the Mustang into the median, where it collided with multiple trees. The Mustang continued into the opposite lane, and there it collided with a third vehicle, a Lexus.
Saiz, who was reportedly not wearing his seatbelt when the crash happened, was ejected from the Mustang. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
His passenger, 18-year-old Elana Keltner Crawford, was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
The driver of the Lexus was taken to the hospital with non-critical injuries.
The third driver was not hurt in the collision.
Authorities continue to investigate the accident at this time.
