PHOENIX — One person was pronounced dead in a multi-vehicle crash just west of Sky Harbor Airport on Friday morning.

Two other victims and three total vehicles were involved in the crash, according to police.

Police said the driver of a silver truck was heading northbound on 16th Street before crossing into oncoming traffic and crashing into a black sedan just north of Interstate 17.

The truck then continued north until crashing head-on into a silver sedan, leaving the driver of the sedan dead.

He was identified only as an adult male.

The male driver of the silver truck was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said that the man had an odor of alcohol and showed signs of impairment in a release.

The pregnant female victim driver the black sedan was transferred to the hospital out of precaution, according to authorities.

The second crash occurred near the intersection of 16th Street and Buckeye Road at around 8:40 a.m.

The intersection is located one mile west of where Buckeye Road turns into Sky Harbor Boulevard on the west end of the airport.

Road closures were put in place on 16th Street, south of Buckeye Road.

Buckeye Road remained accessible to drivers attempting to get in and out of Sky Harbor Airport.
