GLENDALE, Ariz. — A man was arrested for allegedly causing a crash that killed two women after speeding in Glendale, going at least 108 mph.  

Court paperwork alleges Jer Saun Anthony Simpson-Ramsey, 33, was driving a Ford Mustang at excessive speeds on Bethany Home Road near 55th Avenue in Glendale on April 4 when he caused a fatal crash.

A witness said Simpson-Ramsey was speeding when he passed traffic in the two-way left-turn lane and ran a red light at 55th Avenue. 

The Mustang hit a Honda Odyssey going north in the intersection.

The crash left two women dead in the Honda.
