One dead following crash near 19th Avenue and Pima Street

PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- A deadly multi-car crash near 19th Avenue and Pima Street has left one driver dead and an infant injured.

According to police officials, it happened because one driver ran a stop sign.

"I was watching TV, just heard a loud boom, that's about it," said Jonathan Williams, who lives in the area. "Came outside, seen it."

Williams was one of the first to see the aftermath of the deadly wreck, which happened Monday morning. According to Phoenix Police officials, the driver of a Dodge Caravan ran a stop sign on 19th Avenue, and that's when the driver hit a dump truck. Inside the minivan was a one-year-old girl. The crash also set off a chain reaction of other crashes involving two other cars.

The driver of the minivan, identified as 25-year-old Denise Cruz, was taken to a hospital, where she later died from her injuries. Everyone else involved, including the infant, suffered minor injuries. The road was closed as law enforcement worked the crash scene late into the afternoon.

"Sorry for them, their families, I have kids too," said Williams.

Phoenix Police officials said driver impairment is not suspected as a factor in the crash.
