US 93 reopens near Wickenburg after deadly crash

US 93 has reopened at milepost 170 after a deadly crash 25 miles from Wickenburg.

The Arizona Dept. of Public Safety says the closure was due to a head-on collision involving a passenger vehicle and a tractor-trailer.

After the highway reopened, there was still a heavy backup in the area.

During the closure, ADOT advised drivers to take Interstate 17 southbound or Interstate 40 westbound to State Route 95 as alternative routes.
