2 valley teens killed in Friday night crash

Glendale Police are investigating whether impairment played a role in a crash that killed two valley teens Friday night. 
Scott Waite with the Glendale Police Department says the crash happened just after 7:30 p.m. Friday near 59th Avenue and Camelback Road. 
Just before the crash, a grey sedan was traveling westbound and attempting to turn south onto 59th Avenue. While making the turn, the vehicle collided with a green truck that was headed eastbound. 
Waite says four juveniles were in the grey sedan at the time of the crash. 
The front passenger, a 17-year-old girl, and another 16-year-old male passenger were transported to the hospital where they were pronounced deceased. 
Another teen was transported to the hospital in serious condition. 
The driver of the pickup truck is a 27-year-old man who was detained for possible impairment, according to Waite. 
Glendale police are also investigating whether speed and the color of the intersection light played roles in the collision.
