PHOENIX (AP) — An 18-year-old man was killed and two teenage girls, including one who was pregnant, were injured Thursday after a collision sent a car onto a Phoenix sidewalk.

The incident happened around 11:15 a.m. near 35th Avenue and Bell Road when two cars collided for an unknown reason, said Sgt. Maggie Cox.

The impact caused one car to go onto the sidewalk, where there were several pedestrians.

The 18-year-old male victim succumbed to his injuries, Cox said. A 15-year-old pregnant girl suffered serious injuries and her unborn baby died at the hospital. An 18-year-old female is expected to recover. None of the victims’ names were released.

The two drivers, a man and a woman, were not seriously injured.

The intersection is expected to be closed for several hours while police continue to investigate.
