Phoenix police are investigating after a car ran into a crowd early Sunday morning near 43rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., Phoenix police responded to a vehicle vs. pedestrians crash in a parking lot.

Officers found three pedestrians with injuries suffered during the collision.
