GLENDALE, AZ — One person is dead and multiple others are hospitalized after a four-vehicle crash in Glendale.
Just before 7 a.m. Wednesday, emergency crews were called to Grand Avenue and Myrtle, west of 59th Avenue, for a crash involving three vehicles and a motorcycle.
During the initial investigation, Glendale police say a Nissan Altima, traveling northwest on Grand Avenue, went left of the center and crashed with a white Jeep Cherokee.
The impact of that crash caused both vehicles to then hit a motorcycle and Chevy Equinox.
One person was pronounced dead at the scene. That person was identified as a woman occupant of the Nissan Altima, according to Glendale PD. Their name hasn't been released.
A motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Four other patients were taken to a hospital in various conditions.
Their ages have not been provided, but police say they were all adults.
Grand Avenue was shut down in both directions for several hours Wednesday morning but reopened shortly before 2 p.m.
Authorities have not determined if alcohol or speed were factors in the crash. The investigation remains ongoing.
