GLENDALE, Ariz. — A teenage boy and a woman were both killed in a three-car accident in Glendale late Saturday night, police said. 

The Glendale Police Department said officers responded to the accident on Glendale Avenue around 11:30 p.m. 

A black sedan with two people in the car was traveling westbound on Glendale Avenue "at a high rate of speed" when it rear-ended another black sedan carrying three people. 

The vehicle with the three people, which was traveling in the same lane and direction as the car that crashed into it, was struck by a third car that was driving in the eastbound lanes of the roadway. 

Fire crews responded and provided medical treatment to everyone who was injured. 

The two people in the first car remained on scene and a 29-year-old woman was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the car that was rear-ended was also taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The front seat passenger was a 20-year-old woman, identified as Jadalynn Faith Pasion of Buckeye, and she was pronounced dead on scene. 

A 14-year-old boy was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. He later died at the hospital. 

The only person in the third car sustained minor injuries and was not transported.

Detectives determined both speed and impairment appear to be factors of the crash.

The investigation is ongoing.  

It was not immediately known whether anyone was arrested in the crash.

A GoFundMe has been set up for Pasion. You can find that here.
