The Department of Public safety is investigating a deadly crash just northwest of Wickenburg.

Officials say traffic is moving very slowly after two-vehicle collision on US 93 at milepost 71.

According to initial reports, a sedan was driving southbound along US 93 when it moved into northbound traffic and hit a pickup truck head-on, authorities said.

The driver of the sedan was pronounced dead at the scene. He or she was the only person in the car at the time of the accident, a DPS spokesperson said.

A couple in the pickup truck suffered serious injuries, officials said. They were also hauling a horse trailer at the time of the accident but the horse is OK.

Impairment does not appear to be a factor in the accident but an investigation is ongoing, a DPS spokesperson confirmed.

The victim is not being identified at this time.

Commuters are advised to avoid the area while crews work to clear the scene.
