PHOENIX — A man was pronounced dead by Phoenix police after a crash near the I-17 Frontage Road and Grant Street Wednesday evening.

Phoenix police say a Chevy SUV was driving eastbound on Grant Street when it collided with a tractor-trailer that was northbound on the I-17 Frontage Road.

A woman driving the SUV was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, but her passenger, only identified as a man, died at the scene.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was also taken to a hospital with minor injuries, while the passenger was uninjured.

Police say they believe the SUV may have failed to stop for a red light.

The investigation remains ongoing.
