PHOENIX – Two teens connected to a fiery fatal wreck involving street racing and a stolen car in Phoenix over the summer were arrested last week, authorities said Wednesday.

Four people died after a stolen car with six teenage occupants slammed into a rideshare vehicle with three occupants at the intersection of 43rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road on July 22, the Phoenix Police Department said.

Police said the stolen car was racing against a dark sedan northbound on 43rd Avenue when it hit the rideshare vehicle while it made a left turn. The dark sedan left the scene.

The rideshare vehicle burst into flames. Driver Terry Hill, 28, and passengers Sara Loustaunau, 37, and British Conception Pena, 39, died at the scene.

Galexy Saunders, a 19-year-old passenger in the stolen car, died after being taken to a hospital. The other five occupants were hospitalized with serious injuries.

Investigators worked to identify and locate a teenage girl they say was driving the sedan that left the scene. They also determined that a teenage male was driving the stolen car.

The teen drivers were arrested Thursday and booked into the Juvenile Correction Center on multiple felony counts, police said.
