WICKENBURG, Ariz. (AP) - A fatal collision closed the main route
between the Phoenix area and Las Vegas Friday morning.
Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves said
the driver of a Volkswagen van died when the van collided head-on
with an tractor-trailer rig hauling copper concentrate on U.S. 93 near Wickenburg.
Graves said both lanes of the highway were closed due to the 9:20 a.m. accident at milepost 186. No immediate word on when they
would be reopened.
