At Least One Dead after Loop 101 Head-On Accident in Phoenix

PHOENIX, AZ (November 30, 2021) – Early Saturday morning, at least one person was killed in a wrong-way collision on Loop 101.

Police responded to the scene around 3:00 a.m., after receiving multiple dispatch calls. According to reports, two vehicles collided near 19th Avenue.

Investigators say a wrong-way driver of a white car was traveling west in the eastbound lanes of the highway. As a result, the driver collided head-on with an oncoming SUV.

During investigations, the driver of a red sports car traveling at speeds upwards of 100 mph failed to stop and slammed into the SUV.

Medics responded and treated a passenger inside the SUV, and a passenger inside the sports car for injuries. Due to the impact of the crash, the wrong-way driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials currently believe that alcohol was a factor in both collisions. However, an active investigation is still currently underway.
