In the early morning hours, on this Friday in Phoenix, Arizona, a fatal car accident on the Interstate 10 highway took the life of a female driver.
The third day in a row that a serious crash has closed part of the I-10 during the morning commute, this incident took place on the westbound side of the roadway, between 35th and 43rd Avenues at about 3 a.m.
Arizona Department of Public Safety officials have indicated that the accident occurred when a 24-year-old woman lost control of her vehicle while traveling at a high rate of speed and slammed into a wall. Her car was then struck by a truck and another vehicle.
The female driver suffered serious injuries and emergency personnel pronounced her dead at the scene.
The other individuals involved in the accident were apparently uninjured.
DPS officials have informed that the cause of the crash is not clearly known at this time, though it is suspected that the woman's car had become disabled in some way before striking the wall.
The westbound side of the I-10 was closed off for several hours following the crash, though the eastbound side was fully functional.
