A car crash in north Phoenix left one woman dead and three others injured on Tuesday evening, according to police.

At approximately 5:18 p.m., officers responded to reports of a car accident just north of Deer Valley Park, located south of Loop 101 at 19th Avenue and Wahalla Lane.

Police said that a pickup truck driving southbound on 19th Avenue collided with a car turning left onto the same road from Wahalla Lane. 

Four adults in the car were taken to a local hospital for injuries, including an unidentified 21-year-old woman who later died. The two occupants in the truck were uninjured. 

A third vehicle may have been involved in the crash, but authorities did not offer additional details.
