Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A woman is dead and thirteen others were injured when a
wrong-way driving plowed onto a Greyhound bus early Friday morning in Phoenix. According
to State Troopers, a 24-year-old woman was traveling the wrong way on
Interstate 10 just before 2:30 a.m. near Sarival when she struck head-on
into a Greyhound bus carrying 39 passengers. The woman died at the scene,
and thirteen passengers on the bus were injured. The woman was identified
as a Peoria woman and mother of two. Police believe drugs or alcohol played
a role in the crash.
Troopers received reports of a vehicle traveling westbound in the eastbound
lanes of I-10 just moments before the crash. Troopers said the woman was
traveling at about 65 mph when she slammed into the bus. The bus driver
was able to maintained control of the vehicle. The impact caused massive
damages to both vehicles. Photos taken at the scene show the wrong-way
driver's vehicle heavily smashed up. Troopers say the bus was en route
to Phoenix from San Bernardino, CA. A spokesperson with Greyhound said
another bus took the uninjured passengers to Phoenix to finish or continue
their travels. The investigation is ongoing, and there is no new information
of the victims taken to area hospitals.
