CHANDLER, AZ — Authorities say at least one person has died after a fiery crash on the Loop 101 Wednesday night.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a vehicle was traveling south on the freeway approaching the Loop 202 when it hit an impact attenuator attached to a concrete barrier and caught fire.
Video from the scene showed debris scattered across all of the southbound lanes.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the Loop 101 was closed at Price Road while DPS investigated. An estimate on when the freeway would reopen was not immediately available.
Speed is believed to be a factor based on preliminary information, DPS said.
