PHOENIX – A crash after a street race left five children and two adults in the hospital.

It happened Sunday night at 35th Avenue and Camelback when two racing pick-up trucks hit a minivan with three kids inside.

3TV talked with the family of a 29-year-old arrested after fleeing the scene. They say he has never drag-raced before and was trying to stay out of trouble as he tried to get his immigration papers.

Another man was also arrested. Everyone was injured in the crash but they are expected to survive.
