PHOENIX — A man is on the run from police after allegedly causing a fatal crash involving five vehicles, including a Phoenix Police patrol vehicle, authorities said.

The crash happened just after 10 p.m. on Friday night near 34th Street and McDowell Road. Officers found that five vehicles including a marked patrol car were involved, and one vehicle caught fire.

Five people, including two young boys, an adult man, and the two Phoenix Police officers in the patrol car had to be taken to the hospital for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

18-year-old Anthony Salgado Roman, who was in one of the other vehicles, was pronounced dead on the scene.
