PHOENIX (AP) - Prosecutors say a teenager will be tried as an adult for allegedly driving drunk and causing a crash that critically injured three people in Phoenix.

They say the 14-year-old boy is facing four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Monday’s crash.

The teen was booked into Maricopa County Juvenile Court Center after police say he ran a red light at the intersection of Van Buren and 67th Avenue and hit a white SUV.

Authorities say a 3-year-old girl suffered life-threatening injuries after being ejected from the SUV.

The girl suffered fractures to her arms, legs and skull and police say she remains in extremely critical condition.

A 28-year-old man who was driving the SUV and a 31-year-old female passenger still are hospitalized.
