PHOENIX — Authorities say charges are pending against a suspected impaired
driver after a crash at a west Phoenix intersection left two women dead.
Phoenix police identified the two victims Friday as 35-year-old Nerty De
Gutierrez and 29-year-old Elvia Gutierrez.
It isn’t immediately clear if the two women are related.

allegedly ran a red light and collided with a vehicle carrying the two women
about 1 p.m. Thursday.
The women were taken to the hospital where they died from their injuries.
Police said the man is being treated at a hospital for non-life threatening
injuries and he’ll be charged upon his release.
The man’s name hasn’t been released yet.
