GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Two people were injured in an early morning three-car crash in Glendale.

It happened at about 6 a.m. at 99th Avenue and Camelback Road.

Aerial video from the scene showed two vehicles that had rolled off the roadway. A third vehicle that appeared to have sustained serious damage came to rest in the middle of the street near the crosswalk on the south side of 99th Avenue. Debris was scattered all over the roadway.

At this point, police believe one of the three drivers ran a red light, but they have not figured out which one. They also have not determined if impairment or distractions were factors in the crash.

Two of the three drivers were taken to local hospital as a precaution, but their injuries are believed to be relatively minor.

The wreck closed 99th Avenue in both directions. Camelback Road was restricted in the area.2 injured in
