Child dead, pregnant woman hurt in 3-car collision

PHOENIX — Phoenix police say two people are dead and four more injured — including a pregnant woman who underwent emergency delivery — after a three-car collision Saturday night.

Police Sunday identified the two killed as 4-year-old Angel Diaz and 24-year-old Jose Manriquez-Gomez.

Authorities say the woman was driving a Ford Explorer southbound on 83rd Avenue
near Osborn Road at about 7:15 p.m. Friday when it side-swiped a Chevy Malibu
going north.

Sgt. Steve Martos says the Ford Explorer continued across the northbound lanes
and collided almost head-on with a Nissan Frontier pickup.

According to police, the pickup was carrying four people, including the
4-year-old. The girl died shortly after arriving at a hospital.

A 3-year-old boy seated next to her was in serious but stable condition.

The pickup’s driver and other passenger are expected to recover.

Martos says the woman, who was 7 months pregnant, is in stable condition but
her baby is in extremely critical condition.

Nobody in the Chevy was hurt.

Investigators were trying to determine the cause of the incident.
