GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a 13-year-old boy is dead after a pickup truck hit a car from behind at a Goodyear intersection.

Goodyear police say the teenager was in a passenger car that was stopped at a red light before being struck about 7:45 p.m. Monday.

Three other people in the car were injured along with the male driver of the truck and two passengers ages 3 and 5.

Police say the teen was taken to a hospital in critical condition and later died. His name hasn’t been released.

The other people had minor to serious injuries and authorities say they all are expected to recover.

Police say the crash is being investigated, but it appears the 30-year-old driver of the pickup truck wasn’t impaired.
