August 18, 2022

CONGRESS, AZ – A person has died following a two-vehicle collision on US-93 earlier Thursday morning, August 18, 2022, just west of State Route 71 near Congress.

Around 6:40 a.m., the Arizona Department of Public Safety says a Jeep SUV was traveling north on the US-93 highway when it crossed the center line and veered into the southbound lane towards a semi-truck. The truck driver swerved right to avoid a collision, but the Jeep hit the semi’s trailer and rolled over into the shoulder.

The driver of the Jeep was trapped inside and later died from injuries. No one else was in the SUV.

The driver of the semi was not injured. The accident is under investigation.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the victims of this crash.
