Two people suffered broken limbs and had to be extracted from the crushed remains of their car after a head-on crash on Ray Road at Ranch Circle in Ahwatukee Foothills Thursday evening, according to Phoenix police.

The accident happened around 5 p.m., when the driver of a white Jeep Cherokee turned left and failed to yield to oncoming traffic, smashing into a small red Toyota sedan, said Sgt. Dennis Orender of the Phoenix Police Department. The Toyota then careened into a third vehicle - a silver Chevy Suburban, Orender said.

The collision tore the front grill and bumper off the Jeep, and left the Toyota in a crumpled pile. Orender said firefighters had to cut the Toyota's two occupants out of the wreck. The driver suffered broken legs, while his passenger suffered a broken arm, he said.

Occupants of the other two vehicles were treated for non-life threatening injuries, he said. The Jeep's driver was issued a citation for failure to yield, and impairment does not appear to be a factor in the collision, Orender said.

Ok first off... The Driver Suffered one Broken LEG not LEGS and had to have surger on it.
2. HE also Suffered A broken shoulder and ribs.
3. the Passanger Suffered Broken Ribs and some cuts and bruises.
4. the person that hit them should pay for both of their medical bills and buy a new car for the driver. and pay their rent since they are not able to work because of the injuries.
5. get a better reporter so they actually know what there talking about kthxbailol.
