The year of the wrong-way crash continues after a wrong-way driver caused a multicar accident on Interstate 10 early Friday morning.
As many as five cars were involved in the wreck and four people were hospitalized.
The Department of Public Safety said a 25-year-old woman was driving in the wrong direction and eventually collided head-on with another vehicle. Three more cars then slammed into the disabled cars.
State law-enforcement and transportation officials called an emergency meeting earlier this year to address the spike in wrong-way crashes after seven people died in a one-week span in May.
In June, the Arizona Department of Transportation began installing new signage, including larger “Do Not Enter” and “Wrong Way” signs on exit ramps. On-ramp pavement markers with arrows pointing in the proper direction have been installed on several Valley freeways as well.
