Man drives across Phoenix freeway, found shot dead

PHOENIX — Phoenix police said a man found dead Monday in a car that twice crossed
four lanes of freeway may have shot himself.

Sgt. Trent Crump said the investigation continued but that the car drove
through a frontage road fence and down onto Interstate 17’s southbound lanes near Dixileta Drive.

It hit a median wall and careened back across the southbound lanes before
stopping a short distance past the shoulder.

Crump said the car struck only one vehicle, causing minor
damage to a pickup but the driver was unharmed.

Police haven’t ruled out the possibility that someone else was in
the car before it went onto the freeway.
