PHOENIX - A 23-year-old man was killed after a two-car wreck in Phoenix Saturday afternoon.

The crash took place at around 4 p.m. near 35th Avenue just north of Thunderbird Road.

Police said Strahinja Jankovic had just pulled out of a private driveway just north of Thunderbird. He then turned northbound but stayed in the southbound lanes and collided head-on with a car carrying two 17-year-old females.

The two girls were rushed to a local hospital and are listed in stable condition. Jankovic died as a result of his injuries.

Impairment is believed to be a factor in this fatal crash.
