Two people were transported to the hospital Thursday afternoon when a car apparently lost control on Elliot Road in Ahwatukee.

A black car, driven by an adult male was traveling west on Elliot Road when for some reason the driver lost control, said Sgt. Dennis Orender of the Phoenix Police Department. The car hit a bus stop sign and a bench before veering back into traffic and hitting a jeep that was also travelling westbound, causing the Jeep to roll over.

The accident did not cause any serious injuries, but all passengers were transported to the hospital as a precaution. The driver of the Jeep was conscious and alert when transported, Orender said.

So far no citations have been issued, but Orender said the driver of the black vehicle will most likely receive some sort of penalty.

The westbound side of Elliot Road between 51st Street and 48th Street was shut down while the vehicles were cleared from the roadway.
