PHOENIX - Two people died and two others are in the hospital after a semi crossed a median and struck a passenger car.
It happened Sunday morning near the Burnt Wells Rest Area at milepost 87, near Salome.
That crash pushed both vehicles into a culvert on the eastbound right shoulder and the vehicles caught on fire.
Eastbound lanes are closed and a detour is in place eastbound at milepost 81, Salome Road.
ADOT will be routing people along a 6 mile detour and this closure is expected until atleast 6pm.
