2 die, 4 seriously hurt in Phoenix freeway crash

PHOENIX — Authorities have released the names of two Phoenix women killed
in a crash on the Loop 202 freeway.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety officials said 42-year-old Josefina
Holguin-Urquiza and 19-year-old Silvia Mistica Rivera Holguin were both declared
dead at the scene.

The accident happened around 8:30 p.m. Sunday near 44th Street.

Phoenix Fire Department spokesman Scott McDonald said two vehicles collided
causing one to land upside down. Four other people including a toddler were
seriously injured.

DPS officials said the driver of an SUV with four passengers was outside the
vehicle dealing with a deflated tire when a pickup truck collided with it. That
caused the SUV to roll over on its roof.

Authorities said a front-seat passenger in the SUV and a passenger in the pickup
were killed.
