PHOENIX — Two women and a 13-year-old girl have died from injuries suffered when the stolen SUV they were traveling in collided in north Phoenix with another vehicle.

Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Vince Lewis says four other people in the stolen vehicle were injured in Monday night’s crash, including a woman who was seriously injured and the 14-year-old driver whose injuries weren’t threatening his life.

Lewis says shortly after police learned the SUV had been stolen, authorities received a call of a crash on a frontage road near Interstate 17 and Greenway Road.

The stolen SUV collided with another vehicle that was turning from Greenway Road onto the frontage road on a green light.

The other vehicle’s driver was treated at the crash scene.

Lewis says neither driver showed signs of impairment.
