PHOENIX — Police say a total of seven teenagers were inside a vehicle Monday when it crashed into a Phoenix home near 37th Avenue and Acoma Drive.

The Phoenix Fire Department says three 14-year-old children were taken to the hospital in critical condition. A 15-year-old was also hospitalized in stable condition. Four other patients were treated for injuries at the scene.

According to police, there was a two-vehicle crash and one of the vehicles involved then crashed into the home as a result.

Phoenix police tell ABC15 on scene that the driver will be cited for not wearing a seatbelt, failure to control speed and driving without a license.

Surveillance video in the player below shows the vehicle attempt to swerve around another car that was making a turn, before losing control and crashing into the house.

Impairment does not appear to be a factor, according to officials.

Nobody inside the home was injured, according to police.
