SURPRISE, AZ — Two people, including a two-year-old girl, were killed in a wrong-way crash on Loop 303 near Bell Road Wednesday night.

DPS officials say the wrong-way driver, a woman in her 70s, was killed in the crash. The second vehicle had an adult woman and two young children who were all taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

The two-year-old girl has since died of her injuries.

The adult woman in the second vehicle and an infant child remain in serious condition.

DPS officials say impairment and speed are not believed to be a factor at this point.

**Editor's note: DPS originally reported the child deceased as a three-year-old boy. DPS has since corrected that information to clarify it was a two-year-old girl.
