PHOENIX — One person is in critical condition following a car crash in south Phoenix early Saturday morning.

Authorities responded around 1:10 a.m. to the intersection of Dobbins Road and Central Avenue to the report of a collision. Upon arrival, an adult male was suffering serious injuries. He was transported to the hospital in critical, but stable, condition.

The other driver, identified as 26-yar-old Jesten Jimenez, was determined to be under the influence. He was subsequently arrested.
