A 14-year-old boy and 20-year-old woman died after a three-vehicle, late-night crash on Glendale Avenue Saturday, Oct. 17.
According to Tiffany Ngalula of the Glendale Police Department, at 11:30 p.m. Oct. 17, “A black sedan with two occupants was traveling westbound on Glendale Avenue at a high rate of speed and rear-ended another black sedan carrying three occupants, traveling in the same lane and direction.”
She said the vehicle hit from behind collided with a third vehicle head-on.
A 29-year-old woman from the vehicle that rear-ended the second vehicle was transported to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.
The driver of the rear-ended vehicle also was taken to the hospital with injuries that also were not life threatening.
But two passengers in the rear-ended vehicle died: a 14-year-old boy in the back seat and Jadalynn Faith Pasion, a 20-year-old Buckeye resident who was in the front passenger seat.
“Detectives were able to determine that both speed and impairment appear to be factors of the collision. The investigation is ongoing at this time,” said Ngalula.
The driver of the third vehicle sustained minor injuries and did not go to the hospital, Ngalula said.
