A 12-year-old boy died Friday night after two vehicles crashed head-on near 152nd Drive and Camelback Road in Goodyear, officials said.
A Chevrolet Impala and a Jeep were involved in the collision at about 6 p.m., said Lisa Kutis, a spokeswoman with the Goodyear Police Department.
The boy was a passenger in the Jeep, Kutis said.
Four other youths were involved in the crash, including two girls ages 9 and 17 and two boys ages 13 and 16, said Battalion Chief Russ Braden, a spokesman with the Goodyear Fire Department.
All five were transported to hospitals, where the 12-year-old later died, Kutis said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation, but impairment does not appear to be a factor at this time, she said.
