PHOENIX – A major intersection in Mesa was closed during rush hour Wednesday morning after a fatal crash, authorities said.

The intersection of Country Club Drive and Main Street was shut down in all directions after the wreck around 5 a.m., the Mesa Police Department said.

The closure lasted several hours.

Southbound Country Club reopened at Main around 7:30 a.m., and the rest of the intersection was cleared by around 10 a.m.

Two people were killed after two vehicles collided at the intersection. Both were 13-year-old boys.

The Valley Metro light rail platform at the intersection was closed during the investigation, and buses were used to shuttle passengers between stops. The platform reopened before 8 a.m., Valley Metro said.

Motorists were advised to seek alternate routes, with Broadway Road suggested for east-west travel and Alma School Road or Mesa Drive suggested for north-south driving.

No other details about the crash were immediately available.
