GLENDALE, AZ — Police say two young girls were hospitalized after a crash near 51st and Northern avenues Saturday.

Officers learned a vehicle was traveling west on Northern Avenue this morning and failed to obey a traffic light, police say.

This caused the vehicle to hit another car heading east that was trying to make a left turn on 47th Avenue.

The vehicles collided within the intersection.

Two preteen girls, ages 10 and 13, were taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Glendale police say the girls suffered facial lacerations due to the crash.

The driver of the first vehicle remained at the scene and spoke to authorities.

Impairment is not believed to be a factor, according to Glendale police.

An investigation is ongoing.
