14-year-old dead, 3 other teens seriously injured in Glendale crash

The car crashed after attempting to avoid hitting another car turning left onto 53rd Avenue.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Authorities are investigating a deadly collision that killed a teenage boy in Glendale Thursday night.

Glendale police said just after 7 p.m., an older model dark-colored Infiniti sedan was traveling northwest on Grand Avenue near 53rd Avenue when it lost control and crashed into a curb.

Police said a 14-year-old boy died on the scene. Three other teenagers suffered life-threatening injuries and were transported to the hospital. 

It appears the 16-year-old who was driving the Infiniti car was unlicensed and allegedly speeding above the posted speed limit, police said.

The Infiniti crashed after attempting to avoid hitting another car turning left onto 53rd Avenue. The car spun out of control and rolled over. 

Police said three unrestrained occupants of the Infiniti were ejected. 

Impairment does not appear to be a relevant factor. The victims are not being identified at this time but they were all Glendale residents.

Police are asking if anyone witnessed what took place or has any information that they contact the Glendale Police Department at (623)930-3000.
