MARANA, Ariz. - A 19-year-old man is in critical condition following a crash on the northwest side.
Northwest Fire District responded to the accident on Interstate 10 at Ina Road Sunday morning.
Officials say a family of 6 was traveling from Tempe to Tucson when the driver lost control of the vehicle and the vehicle rolled several times.
The 19-year-old was thrown from the vehicle.
Two others were trapped in the vehicle and crews had to use the "jaws of life" to free them by removing the roof and doors.
The remaining three passengers were out of the vehicle prior to the arrival of emergency crews.
Four of the passengers were transported with minor injuries, one with serious injuries and the 19 year-old with critical injuries.
All the patients were transported by ground ambulance to the Trauma Center at the University of Arizona Medical Center's central campus.
