PHOENIX, AZ – According to ABC15 News, one person was killed and two people were injured in an accident involving four vehicles on I-17 NB in Phoenix on Thursday.

The crash was reported shortly before 10:00 p.m between Thomas Road and Indian School Road. Authorities have not released extensive information regarding the cause of the crash at this time, but believe the incident began with a driver of an Acura rear-ending a Kia on the interstate.

The driver of the Kia was trapped in their vehicle in the collision and had to be extricated from it at the scene. That driver was then rushed to the hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

The driver of the Acura and a third, unidentified driver both sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the crash and were transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Officials currently believe that high speeds and impairment may have led up to the accident. The driver of the Acura will be facing charges once they are no longer hospitalized.

An investigation is currently ongoing. We will update this post as further information becomes available.
