One person has been arrested and another hospitalized following an early Monday morning crash in South Amarillo.

According to Amarillo police, officers were sent to the 5100- block of South Coulter Street just after 2 a.m. on a crash.

Police said 21-year-old Kaleb Collins and 20-year-old Brenton Jones were walking on a sidewalk on the east side of the roadway in the 5100- block of South Coulter Street. At that time, a woman was driving northbound in a 2015 Nissan Altima on South Coulter Street. She had another woman as a passenger in her vehicle. The woman pulled up next to the two men and offered them a ride.

When she noticed a vehicle in her rear-view mirror appeared to be traveling fast, she put on her four-way flashers.

The vehicle she saw traveling fast was a 2007 Pontiac G6 driven by 18-year-old Brandon Ware. There was also a passenger in the Pontiac, who was identified as 18-year-old Jaelin Ford.

The Pontiac struck the Nissan, as well as Collins, who was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police said Ware and Ford were also taken to the hospital. Their injuries were non-life-threatening. Jones and the two women inside the Nissan were not injured.

APD said speed and alcohol are factors in the crash.

Ware was arrested and booked into the Randall County Jail for Intoxicated Assault with Serious Bodily Injury.
