I-10 crash kills driver in Southeast Valley


June 20th 2012 - An 18-year-old man died in an early morning car crash on the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 early Wednesday.

The man, who was driving, apparently swerved car into another lane and overcorrected by swerving into the median wall on I-10 near the Elliot Road exit, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

The driver was the only person in the car. Officers believe alcohol might have been a factor in the collision, according to DPS.

The eastbound lanes of I-10 were shut down for about an hour and a half. Traffic was back to normal before morning rush hour, according to DPS.
