Wrong-way crash on I-10 near Quartzsite leads to 2nd crash

QUARTZSITE, Ariz. — Authorities say a fatal crash caused by a wrong-way driver near Quartzsite has triggered a deadly pile-up.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says the chain of events started Friday around 7:30 p.m. on I-10.

According to investigators, the wrong-way driver slammed head-on into another vehicle in the eastbound lanes and two other vehicles were hit.

They say a woman in the vehicle involved in the initial head-on was killed. The female wrong-way driver suffered critical injuries.

Eight others were hospitalized but their conditions are unknown.

DPS says a commercial truck pulling a semi-trailer failed to slow down around 5:30 a.m. for congestion related to the collision.

The truck rear-ended another commercial vehicle, leading to two other commercial trucks getting hit.

Authorities say the driver who didn’t slow died.
