PHOENIX – Three people were hospitalized, including one with life-threatening injuries, after a collision in Glendale on Sunday night, authorities said.

Officers responded to a crash on 51st Avenue just north of Northern Avenue around 10 p.m., according to the Glendale Police Department.

“A vehicle traveling southbound crossed the center line and collided with a vehicle traveling northbound,” Sgt. Randy Stewart said Monday in a media advisory.

The northbound vehicle had three occupants. The driver sustained life-threatening injuries, and one passenger was taken to a hospital with injuries that are serious but not life-threatening, police said. The other passenger didn’t require hospitalization.

The other driver, the sole occupant of the southbound vehicle, was taken to a hospital with injuries that aren’t considered life-threatening.

“Impairment is being investigated as a possible factor,” Stewart said.
