PHOENIX - One person is dead after an early-morning hit-and-run collision on 67th Avenue just north of Lower Buckeye Road on Saturday.
Phoenix police say a man driving a Dodge Charger at high speed struck a Dodge Caravan from behind, which is from a local cab company and had three passengers in addition to the driver.
One of the passengers, who was not restrained in the vehicle, sustained serious injury and was transported to a local hospital where he was later declared deceased.
The two other passengers and driver had non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
The 45-year-old man driving the Charger also sustained injuries and fled the scene after the collision. He was later located by officers.
Police believe impairment was a factor in the incident, and charges are pending when the suspect is released from the hospital.
