PHOENIX – A child is dead and three other people are in the hospital after a collision in central Phoenix on Tuesday morning, authorities said.

A vehicle heading eastbound on Thomas Road crossed into westbound traffic and collided with another vehicle around 9 a.m. just east of Seventh Street, the Phoenix Police Department said.

The man driving the westbound vehicle and two juvenile passengers were rushed to hospitals, police said. One of the passengers, a 9-year-old girl, died at the hospital. The man and the other child are expected to survive.
