Phoenix, AZ (April 26, 2023) – The Arizona Department of Public Safety has reported that the eastbound lanes of Loop 202 in Phoenix have reopened following a tragic incident. A man, who was involved in a separate accident, was struck and killed by a car.
The initial accident occurred at around 3:45 a.m. on Saturday when a Dodge Charger collided with another vehicle that was pulling a trailer near the 32nd Street exit. A third car hit the trailer and was pushed into an on-ramp at 32nd Street from the impact. The male driver of the third car got out, ran into the westbound lanes and was fatally struck by an SUV.
