PHOENIX — A woman who was ejected from a vehicle after it hit a utility pole in Phoenix on Saturday morning has died, according to police.

Officers responded to the site of the accident near 43rd Avenue and Thomas Road at 3:15 a.m., the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release.

Once they arrived, they found a vehicle against a light pole.

Responders extricated two people from the vehicle. Three individuals were transported to a local trauma center.

A woman later died from her injuries. Two men are expected to survive.

The cause of the accident was unknown.

The woman, a passenger inside the vehicle, was ejected as it rolled over.
