PHOENIX – A teenage boy was killed and three other people were seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash in Phoenix on Sunday night, authorities said.

The 16-year-old who died was among three teenagers in a Ford Mustang that collided with a Honda Accord at the intersection of Indian School Road and 36th Street around 9:30 p.m., the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release.

Police said speed may have been a contributing factor for the Mustang, and the man driving the Accord showed signs of being under the influence of alcohol.

The Mustang was heading east on Indian School and the Accord was turning left onto 36th Street when the collision occurred. The impact pushed the Accord into a traffic signal pole.

The 17-year-old driving the Mustang and the boy who died were ejected from the vehicle. The Mustang driver and another 16-year-old passenger suffered injuries described as serious but not life-threatening.

The 50-year-old Accord driver, who was alone in his vehicle, also had injuries described as serious but not life-threatening.

The investigation is ongoing. Charges could be filed depending on the outcome.
