West Phoenix crash leaves 1 woman dead, 2 others hurt

One woman is dead and two other people are hurt following a crash near 79th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road Thursday morning.

One person needed to be extricated from the two-vehicle collision, Phoenix fire officials said.

Both drivers, a man and a woman, were hospitalized and are expected to survive. One of the vehicle's passengers, 27-year-old Edna Villa, died at the hospital.

Video from the scene showed a car wrapped around a light pole.

Investigators say the crash happened when the vehicle that Villa was in turned left in front of the other.

"Determination of fault will be determined through accident reconstruction which will be done by investigators," Sgt. Rob Scherer said.

Impairment is not believed to be a factor in the crash.

No further details were released by police.
