SCOTTSDALE, AZ — One person is dead after a three-vehicle crash Sunday morning on Scottsdale Road near McDowell Road.

Scottsdale police say one of the drivers, 94-year-old Donald Detzler, is dead after the crash.

Police say Detzler was driving north on Scottsdale Rd. and tried to make a left turn into a parking lot when another vehicle traveling south hit his vehicle.

The adult male driver of that vehicle reportedly remained on scene, but later was taken to a hospital for precautionary reasons.

The driver of a third vehicle, a USPS van that was hit as a result of the original crash, was not hurt and did not request medical transport.

Scottsdale Road was temporarily closed near McDowell Road, but has since reopened.

The crash is still under investigation.
