Phoenix police say six people who were critically injured in a head-on crash are expected to survive.

Sgt. Mercedes Fortune says a speeding car lost control at about 8:30 p.m. Friday and struck a small van stopped at a red light at 27th Avenue and Indian School Road.
Fortune says the impact started a domino effect, causing the van to hit a truck stopped at the light and the truck to strike another vehicle.
The sergeant said Saturday that the driver of the speeding car was among the six people hospitalized with injuries and impairment of the driver is suspected as a possible cause in the collision.
