Fatal crash closes westbound I-10 near Quartzsite


A fatal crash closed the westbound lanes of Interstate 10 about 20 miles east of Quartzsite early Friday morning, an Arizona Department of Transportation spokesman said.

Two people were killed in the two-car collision that was reported at 3:52 a.m., said an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer.

Westbound traffic is being detoured at Vicksburg Road (exit 45), where drivers will reach U.S. Highway 60 westbound to return to I-10, the ADOT spokesman said.

ADOT officials did not know how long the closure would last, the spokesman said.
