PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities have identified the three people, including a 3-month-old infant, who were killed when a pickup truck collided with a Phoenix fire engine heading to an emergency call.

Police said Monday that Sunday morning's collision at a west Phoenix intersection occurred after a pickup made a left turn in front of the oncoming fire truck.

Police say the fire engine was running its sirens and lights.

The impact caused the fire engine to roll onto its side.

The pickup driver, 20-year-old Kenneth Collins, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A female passenger, 19-year-old Dariana Serrano, and Collins' infant son, also named Kenneth, were later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The three firefighters on board the engine are recovering from their injuries.

Police say the baby was in a car seat.
