Freeway in Phoenix suburb fully reopened after fatal overnight crash

PHOENIX — A freeway cutting through a Phoenix suburb was fully reopened early Tuesday morning after a fatal overnight crash.

The right two lanes of the Loop 101 were closed near University Drive about 1 a.m. after a sweeper hit a retaining wall. The driver, 23-year-old Ernest Tre Daurham, was killed in the rollover crash.

About 25 feet of retaining wall was damaged in the crash.

The lanes reopened about 6 a.m.

DPS spokesman Bart Graves said the truck was traveling at high speed when it
lost control and struck the retaining wall.
