Chandler, AZ (October 8, 2020) – Deputies from the Chandler Police Department have released further details after a serious accident involving injuries and at least one fatality on Interstate 10 at Queen Creek Road and Wild Horse Pass on Wednesday evening.

Chandler police say that one person was killed in the crash, which occurred on eastbound Interstate 10 just outside Phoenix late Wednesday night. Officers say that the accident happened around 11:15 p.m. near Queen Creek and Wild Horse Pass.

While police have not released any specific details, the Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed the fatality and said that a tribal member was involved. The Gila River Police Department is now handling the investigation.

Aerial video showed a mangled car being removed from the scene shortly after sunrise. Interstate 10 eastbound was closed as a result of the accident, with traffic being routed off at Queen Creek Road. One lane was reopened several hours later, but the backup was significant.

The investigation into the accident continues at this time.

Our thoughts are with any injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their fast recovery.
