Driver possibly impaired during crash into car of FOX 10's Rick D'Amico

Fire crews say one person had to be extricated after multiple vehicles collided near 32nd Street and Union Hills on Thursday morning. 

Phoenix Fire spokesman William Benedict says a 27-year-old woman is in serious condition and was transported to a hospital. 

A woman was driving westbound when she reportedly went across the road and began driving the wrong way in the eastbound lanes. At that point, we're told she hit a second car head-on.

The second car was being driven by FOX 10's Rick D'Amico, who was on his way into work.

He was not hospitalized. D'Amico is recovering at home and hopes to be back to work on Friday.

Afterward, the woman's car flipped and landed on the curb.

Police say they are looking into whether or not impairment was a factor in the crash.

The driver of a third vehicle involved was questioned at the scene.

All lanes on Union Hills have reopened.
