SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Three people were hurt Wednesday night after a driver crossed the median on a Scottsdale roadway and slammed into oncoming vehicles.
Police told ABC15 crews the four-car accident happened just before 4 p.m. near 64th Street and Shea Boulevard.
An elderly female driver heading westbound on Shea reportedly crossed the median into eastbound traffic, and struck two vehicles. An SUV that was struck went on to hit a fourth vehicle turning into a nearby drive.
The elderly woman and a passenger inside her car suffered serious but non life-threatening injuries, according to police. The extent of the third person's injuries is unclear.
Officials are investigating what caused the woman to cross the median.
Eastbound Shea was shut down for several hours as crews cleared the accident scene.
