Preliminary Information: 

Today, at 7:44 p.m., the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) began to receive reports of a red sedan traveling westbound within the eastbound lanes of I-10 from Sky Harbor Airport. That red sedan transitioned wrong-way from I-10 to the southbound SR51 HOV transition ramp, where it struck a white sedan head-on that was traveling southbound along SR51 within the HOV transition to eastbound I-10. A third vehicle, also traveling southbound on the SR51, was subsequently struck. The head-on collision caused fatal injuries to both the driver of the wrong-way red sedan and the driver of the first white sedan. The driver of the third vehicle was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries.


Both deceased drivers are identified as males. The roadway will be closed southbound SR51 to eastbound I-10 for at least three hours. Southbound McDowell Road exit is also temporarily closed while Phoenix Fire extricates both drivers.
