PHOENIX – One person was killed in a single-car rollover wreck on Interstate 17 at Interstate 10 in Phoenix early Thursday, authorities said.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the driver was heading southbound on Frontage Road from McDowell Road before going down the embankment towards the freeway.

The car ran into a bridge support and then tumbled several times.

The driver was pronounced dead the scene.
