Phoenix multi-vehicle crash

Phoenix firefighters responded to a multi-vehicle car crash at the intersection of 40th Street and McDowell Road around 8:00 p.m. on May 3rd. The collision included a bus and two passenger vehicles. One of the smaller vehicles flipped over onto its roof during the crash.  

Four people were originally reported to be in critical condition after suffering catastrophic injuries. Phoenix Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Maggie Cox 

later clarified that the 3-week-old girl, 19 and 26-year-old women, and a 22-year-old man involved in the Phoenix multi-vehicle crash did not suffer life-threatening injuries. Each was treated at the scene of the accident prior to being transported for medical care.   

According to Sgt. Maggie Cox, the accident was a result of one vehicle failing to yield while making a left turn. In turn, that driver hit another vehicle which then struck the city bus that was at a stoplight.
