Mesa, Arizona—Jared Carter, age 35, of Mesa died Sunday afternoon in a multi-vehicle crash.

Mesa Police say that Matthew Crisp, age 27, was traveling west on Broadway Road when he first hit a car at Stapley Drive at about 1:30 P.M.  He continued driving erratically, striking curbs, driving onto sidewalks and colliding with cars before finally crashing into a fourth vehicle at Alma School Road. 

Mr. Carter was a rear-seat passenger in the last vehicle that was hit.  He was pronounced dead at the scene, while the four remaining occupants of the car were taken to local hospitals.

Police say Crisp was unresponsive when extricated from his car.  He remains hospitalized in intensive care.  He will face charges of one count of manslaughter and four counts of aggravated assault.

Mesa Police Detective Steve Berry says test results for drug impairment are pending, while investigators are attempting to determine whether Crisp may have suffered a medical incident.

We extend our condolences to Mr. Carter’s family and friends, and we wish those who were injured speedy and complete recoveries.
