2 Valley visitors dead after collision in Glendale


Two North Carolina residents visiting the Valley for the holidays were killed and four others treated for injuries after a three-vehicle collision in Glendale on Sunday afternoon.

Robert Kelly, 71, and his wife, Nelda, 70, of Hampstead, NC, were passengers in a white sedan driven by a relative that was struck by a silver sedan in the intersection of 75th Avenue and Bell Road about 3:20 p.m., said Glendale police Sgt. Tracey Breeden.

The relative was treated and released from a Valley hospital.

The driver of the sedan was taken to a local hospital and also expected to be OK, while two people in an SUV that was also struck were treated at the scene.

Police said the sedan's driver ran a red light in the intersection and collided with the car transporting the Kellys and SUV that was traveling next to it.

Detectives said they do not believe impairment was a factor and were still looking into whether speed was a cause, Breeden said.
