PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say two people died in separate traffic collisions in Phoenix involving impaired drivers.
Police say the incidents happened Sunday just a few hours apart.
The first one occurred at Baseline Road and 48th Street when a car struck an approaching motorcycle while turning left.
The motorcyclist, 56-year-old William Curran, was killed. A 59-year-old female passenger is listed in extremely critical condition. Neither was wearing a helmet.
Police say the 28-year-old male driver showed signs of impairment and was booked on manslaughter and aggravated assault.
The second was near 53rd Avenue and Van Buren Street. A vehicle crossed over the median and struck a car driven by a 27-year-old woman.
The woman died at the scene. Her 3-year-old daughter is in critical condition.
Police say speed and impairment were factors.
