SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Authorities say a driver is suspected of being impaired after a collision in Scottsdale involving a pedi-cab and a car that seriously injured two Kansas tourists.

Scottsdale police say 27-year-old Joseph Paul Spano was arrested on suspicion of DUI, endangerment and aggravated assault. Police didn’t immediately know Friday if Spano he had a lawyer yet.

Police say Cody A. Clark and Michael D. Tysver were riding in the pedi-cab and remain hospitalized with head and spine injuries. Friends say both 21-year-old men from Great Bend, Kan., were in Arizona for Thursday night’s Fiesta Bowl involving Kansas State.

The pedi-cab’s driver was treated and released from the hospital. He told police he was transporting the Kansas men to their hotel when the accident occurred about 3 a-m, Friday.
