Wrong-way SAAB teenager driver allegedly causes 5-car crash

A wrong-way crash near Glendale (PHOENIX, USA) and 75th Avenues sent three people to the hospital on Tuesday morning.

An 18-year-old with Saab 9-3 was headed northbound in southbound lanes on 75th Avenue around 7:45 a.m. A teenager reportedly crashed his Saab 9-3 into another vehicle head-on, leading three other cars to collide too.

Three of the seven people involved were taken to hospitals; the driver of the Saab was one of those transported (non life threatening injuries). Authorities say he showed signs of impairment.

The intersection was shut down for several hours during the investigation.
