GLENDALE, Ariz. — Glendale police say a vehicle collision has left one person dead and two injured.

Police say the accident occurred Saturday just before 5 p.m. in the area of Northern and 67th avenues.

According to investigators, two cars were heading in the same direction when one side-swiped the other.

The impact caused one vehicle to veer off the road and hit a utility pole.

Police say the driver and two passengers in that car were hospitalized.

One, a front seat passenger, died. The driver remains in serious but stable condition. The other passenger has since been treated for minor injuries.

Authorities do not know if speed or impairment were factors in the crash.

They did not release the identity of the passenger killed.
