1 dead in wrong-way crash on US 60 near Wittmann

One person is dead following a wrong-way crash involving multiple vehicles on the US 60 northwest of Phoenix.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the crash happened just after 2:30 a.m. on May 6 when a Dodge Ram that was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes crashed into a semi-truck at milepost 131 near Wittmann.

The driver of the Dodge Ram was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the Dodge Ram was ejected and transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the semi-truck suffered minor injuries.

No identities were released. Impairment is believed to be a factor in the crash.
