MCSO: Woman dies after truck drives into oncoming traffic

AVONDALE, AZ - A deadly car crash left one woman dead after a truck drove into oncoming traffic Tuesday night. 

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, 69-year-old Carol Squire was driving westbound on Indian School Road near 104th Drive when a truck traveling eastbound hit her car.

A truck driver, in his 20s, told sheriff deputies that a vehicle had turned in front of his car and he went into oncoming traffic.
