PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say a man driving a stolen SUV ran a red light, causing a multi-vehicle collision that killed a woman and her two teenagers.

Police say the man was among several people injured in the crash Thursday and was released from the hospital Friday.

Police then arrested 33-year-old Raymond Montgomery on suspicion of murder, endangerment and other charges.

Police say speed contributed to the crash and impairment could be a factor. Those killed were identified as 45-year-old Courtney Lonergan, 18-year-old Ali Geer and 16-year-old Almira Geer.

Police say none of the other injuries was life-threatening.
