We are investing a wrong-way crash that claimed the life of three people. The crash occurred within the northbound traffic lanes of I-17, just north of Greenway Rd. 

  • There were a total of three driver/occupants that had to be extricated by the fire department
    • They were all pronounced deceased on scene.
