Westbound I-10 in Phoenix reopens after fatal crash

Posted: Updated:

For the third consecutive day, a serious accident closed part of Interstate 10 in Phoenix during the morning commute.

Authorities say a 24-year-old female driver was killed around 3 a.m. Friday when she lost control of her car and it struck a freeway wall near 43rd Avenue.

Officials say the woman was speeding.  Her car ended up in the middle of the lanes and was then T-boned by another car.

She was declared dead at the scene.  Authorities have not released her name.

Three vehicles were involved in the crash, but no other injuries were reported.

Westbound I-10 was closed much of Friday morning at 35th Avenue, just west of the "Stack" junction with Interstate 17. The freeway reopened shortly before 6 a.m.

On Thursday morning, the driver of a big rig was killed when his semi-truck crashed into a barrier on I-10 in Tempe and caught fire.
A semi-truck hauling mulch rolled over Wednesday morning on I-10 near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport at the I-17 junction.
