Driver killed in fiery, multi-car Phoenix crash: police

One person is dead, and another person is injured following a crash near a Phoenix intersection that involved multiple vehicles.

Phoenix Police say a car crashed into several parked vehicles just before 1 p.m. on Feb. 29 near 67th Avenue and Fillmore Street. That car then burst into flames.

The driver of the car, 19-year-old David Juarez, was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say they are also investigating a reported shooting at a nearby home that may be connected to the crash. 

"Evidence of a shooting was discovered at a home in the area, "Sgt. Mayra Reeson said. "The home was searched, and no additional victim(s) or suspect(s) were discovered."

A surveillance camera in the area captured the crash.

"The Camry was underneath my car," said Alyssa Ingram. "My car flew that way, the cars were on fire, and some guy jumped out. It was scary."

In a later part of the video, a person can be seen getting out of one of the cars involved in the crash. Witnesses say the man was crying for help, saying he'd been shot, and that a friend was taking him to the hospital.

"The flames got really high, and I kept trying to hose it and hose it, and I guess the gas -- it kept flaming up," said one witness.
