PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A girl was seriously hurt in a two-vehicle crash in west Phoenix on Thursday night.

According to Phoenix police, the crash happened at the intersection of 79th Avenue and McDowell Road just before 6:30 p.m. A Phoenix Fire Department spokesman said a 9-year-old girl was rushed to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. On Friday, police said it appears the girl wasn't restrained in her seat prior to the crash.

A 21-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man were also taken to area hospitals for injuries. Their conditions were not immediately available.

Officers worked for several hours to determine what led up to the crash. Investigators were able to determine one of the vehicles driven by a man didn't stop at a red light and hit the car with the woman and girl inside. Police weren't able to say if speed or impairment were involved.

This is an ongoing investigation.
