PHOENIX — Two adults are dead and two children are in critical condition after a crash on Interstate 10 in Phoenix Sunday.
DPS officials have identified 30-year-old Jimmy Lee Greenwood of Surprise as the driver of a gray Ford Mustang and a passenger as 35-year-old Farren Isabel Relerford of El Mirage.
Just after midnight, DPS troopers received a report of a crash with serious injuries on the eastbound lanes near 59th Avenue.
When troopers arrived they found two adults and two children inside the crashed vehicle. Both adults were killed, DPS said.
A two-year-old boy and four-year-old girl were also inside the vehicle and taken to a hospital in critical condition, according to Phoenix Fire officials.
A preliminary investigation leads investigators to believe that the vehicle was racing another car just before the crash happened, DPS announced.
Officials say the other vehicle was a "non-contact" party, meaning it did not come into physical contact with the crashed vehicle, but may have been a potential factor in how the crash occurred.
Impairment has not been ruled out and the investigation remains ongoing.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) is seeking information from anyone who may have witnessed the collision or saw other vehicles involved with the Mustang prior to the collision.
