PHOENIX – Three people were taken to hospitals and six others were treated at the scene after a multivehicle crash in Scottsdale on Thursday morning, authorities said.

Five vehicles were involved in the collision on Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard just west of the Loop 101 Pima Freeway, according to the Scottsdale Fire Department.

“We transported two patients to a local trauma center. We also transported one other patient to a local hospital for evaluation. The other six patients were treated and refused transportation,” Capt. Dave Folio said in a media advisory.

Video released by the fire department showed a white car partially on the brick median with its front end damaged and hood up.
