Wrong-way driver dies on I-17 north at Anthem Way

PHOENIX — A fatal accident involving a wrong-way driver closed a section of northbound Interstate 17 in Phoenix’s northern outskirts.

The accident occurred about 3 a.m. Monday near Anthem Way when a southbound SUV collided with a tractor-trailer rig in the northbound lanes.

The semi carrying produce caught fire but the driver and a passenger got out
safely. However, the state Department of Public Safety said the 35-year-old
Anthem man driving the SUV was killed.
