GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Three people were injured in a two-vehicle crash in Glendale Monday morning.

A green convertible and a white car collided near 55th Avenue and Thunderbird Road at about 9:45 a.m. The convertible drove over the sidewalk then slammed into a block wall.

When crews arrived on the scene, the convertible was on fire and bystanders were putting it out with a fire extinguisher, according to Michael Young with the Glendale Fire Department.

The driver, identified as a man in his 60s, "was found to be unresponsive and at that time did not have a pulse and was not breathing," Young said.

Fire crews began working on him and were able to get a pulse back. He was taken to a hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

Young said the man was not wearing a seat belt.

The man and woman in the other car were taken to a hospital in serious condition.
