Car filled with seven teens crashes into home in Phoenix, driver didn't have a license, police say

The Phoenix Fire Department says a 14-year-old girl and two 14-year-old boys suffered serious injuries in the crash.

PHOENIX — Four teenagers were rushed to the hospital after the car they were riding in crashed into a Phoenix home Monday afternoon. Phoenix police say the driver of that car didn't have a license.

Emergency crews were called to the home near 35th Avenue and Thunderbird Road around 4:30 p.m.  Phoenix police say the car that crashed into the home was carrying seven teenagers and that no one in the vehicle had a license.

Security camera video from a neighbor's home appears to show the vehicle with the seven teens whizzing by another vehicle on the road before it crashed into the corner of a home.

"They must have been going pretty fast," said Reginald Johnston, who was in the neighborhood when it happened. "They need to be more careful."

No one was inside the home at the time of the crash.

Officials said a 14-year-old girl and two 14-year-old boys suffered critical injuries in the crash. A 15-year-old girl is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Four other people were treated at the scene. 

The cause of the crash is under investigation. Police say citations could be issued after they determine the cause of the crash.
