PHOENIX - A serious car wreck involving an unmarked police car caused delays on an Interstate 17 off-ramp late Saturday evening.

The accident happened on the Peoria Avenue off-ramp just before 8 p.m.

Witnesses told police the driver of an SUV was barreling down the frontage road when it appears the driver lost control and jumped the concrete barrier slamming into an unmarked police car and another vehicle.

Firefighters had to cut one of the vehicles open to get the victims out.

The victims include two 20-year-olds, who were both taken to area trauma centers.

The Department of Public safety said the injuries were non-life-threatening.

Police continue to investigate. No word on if the driver of the SUV will face any charges.
