PD: Phoenix hit-and-run driver flees crash, causes another one involving several other cars

Those injured in a Phoenix hit-and-run that caused a multi-car rollover crash in Phoenix on Wednesday night are expected to be OK.

The crash happened near 32nd Street and McDowell Road on Aug. 24 just before 5 p.m.

Phoenix Police explained what happened.

"When officers arrived they located a vehicle that had rolled over and struck a city bus. After speaking to witnesses they learned the vehicle was involved in a hit-and-run collision at 40th Street and McDowell Road and sped away from the area," police say.

That's when police say the hit-and-run driver ran a red light and crashed into other cars at the intersection, hit a Phoenix bus, then ended up on its roof.

Phoenix Fire says there was an initial report of someone being trapped and needing extraction.

Phoenix Police detailed the injuries, saying, "There were two people transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries; the driver of the hit-and-run vehicle and a woman involved in the collision at 40th Street and McDowell Road."

Officials say the woman is pregnant.
