Police do not believe speed or impairment were factors in the crash, and the Mitsubishi SUV’s driver was cooperating with investigators, Pena said.

The teenager was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition, he said.

Further information about the crash was not immediately available.

Eastbound Olympic Avenue from Green Valley Parkway will be closed for three to four hours, Pena said about 3:45 p.m.
