GLENDALE, AZ — Multiple people, including children, were injured and taken to hospitals Monday afternoon after being involved in a two-vehicle crash in Glendale.

Emergency crews were called to the scene near 57th Drive and Grand Avenue around 4:45 p.m.

Police say a truck was making a left hand turn at the intersection, failed to yield, and was struck by a car that was traveling northwest on Grand Avenue.

The truck was occupied by an adult and a 5-year-old child, and the car was occupied by two adults and four kids, ranging from 2 weeks old to 8 years old, according to Glendale Police Sgt. John Roth.

On Tuesday afternoon, Sgt. Roth said the adult in the truck had serious injuries, but they were not considered to be life-threatening. He said the child was not hurt. He said the four children in the car were not properly restrained, and "luckily" only suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the car, who was not identified, would be ticketed for child restraint violations, he said.

He said impairment was not a factor in the crash.
