A motorist driving a 2011 red Mitsubishi Outlander attempted to make a left hand turn onto Adamo Drive from N. 45th St.

Officers arrived on scene and located four occupants in the 2011 Mitsubishi. All four SUV passengers were transported to a local hospital where the adult female passenger was later pronounced deceased.

The driver of the SUV, an adult male, and an 8-year-old juvenile passenger are currently in critical condition with life threatening injuries. Another juvenile passenger is in stable condition. 

At this time, roadways heading eastbound on Adamo Dr. are closed to traffic until further notice to allow for the investigation. An update will be provided once all roadways are cleared.
