Crash closes eastbound I-10 east of Quartzsite


06/17 - A fatal crash has closed eastbound Interstate 10 about 10 miles east of Quartzsite. The Arizona Department of Public Safety said at least two people have been airlifted from the scene.

Arizona Department of Transportation officials said a detour has been set up to get drivers around the closure: Travelers will exit I-10 at U.S. 60 eastbound (milepost 31), then turn south on Vicksburg Road, which will bring drivers back to I-10 near milepost 45.

Drivers should allow for extra travel time. There is no estimated time to reopen eastbound lanes. Westbound lanes remain open.
