SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a man and two children are dead following a single-vehicle crash in suburban Phoenix.

Scottsdale police officer David Pubins says a pickup truck carrying the three along with the children's father went out of control and rolled about 4 p.m. Saturday.

He says in a news release that the adult male driver and the two girls, ages 11 and 12, were killed in the crash at 141st St. and Rio Verde in Scottsdale. The man and one of the girls were thrown from the truck.

The girl's father, who was a passenger, was injured but able to extricate himself and is expected to survive.

There was no word on the cause of the crash but Pubins says alcohol and bad weather are believed to have been factors.

No names were immediately released.
