PHOENIX - A man is dead and a woman is in the hospital after a fiery crash in Phoenix Friday night.
The crash happened near 33rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road just before 9 p.m. on Aug. 18, says Phoenix Police Sgt. Phil Krynsky.

After firefighters extinguished the car's flames, they learned that 35-year-old Rolando Osuna Rubio died from his injuries.
The other driver was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK.
