3 killed, 4 hurt in wrong-way collision on I-17
Arizona authorities say three people were killed and four others injured in an Interstate 17 collision between a wrong-way driver's car and a minivan carrying an extended family.
The state Department of Public Safety says the accident occurred Friday morning in the southbound lanes of I-17 about 30 miles north of Phoenix.
DPS spokesman Raul Garcia says three adults in the minivan were killed. The injured include the wrong-way driver plus two adults and a child in the minivan.
Garcia says DPS received 911 calls about the wrong-way driver and that officers were trying to intercept when the collision occurred.
Southbound I-17 reopened after being closed because of the accident.
An accident Monday on a Tempe freeway ramp killed a wrong-way driver and an off-duty Mesa police officer.
