QUARTZSITE, Ariz. (AP) – Westbound Interstate 10 is closed about 20 miles east of Quartzsite in western Arizona because of a fatal collision.

The state Department of Public Safety says initial information from the scene indicates that two people are dead as a result of the two-vehicle accident Friday morning.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says westbound traffic on I-10 is being detoured at Vicksburg Road. Motorists take that road to reach U.S. 60 westbound to return to I-10.

ADOT says motorists should expect delays and extra travel time.

According to ADOT, there is no estimated time for westbound I-10 to reopen.

Meanwhile, eastbound I-10 remains open.
