PHOENIX -- Three people are in the hospital after an early morning wreck that closed a portion of Bethany Home Road in Phoenix Monday.

It happened just before 6 a.m. on Bethany Home Road at about 15th Avenue.

Four cars were involved. While it's not clear what happened, one hit a wall, a second hit a pole and a third wound up in the front yard of a home.

"The scene is spread out over about 50 yards," said Capt. Tony Muer of the Phoenix Fire Department.

Three people were taken to local hospitals. Three more were treated at the scene and refused transport.

Eastbound Bethany Home Road was closed between 13th and 16th avenues for more than two hours.

Investigators are trying to determine what led up to the wreck.
