A collision on Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway today claimed a life. The incident occurred around 3:45 p.m.
Maricopa Police Department described the two vehicles involved in the fatal incident as a commercial vehicle and a small SUV. Maricopa Fire/Medical Department stated it was a head-on collision near the junction of Hartman Road.
MPD immediately detoured traffic off the stretch of MCGH between Hartman Road and White and Parker Road. The possible cause of the collision and the identity of those involved are not yet available.
MPD spokesman Ricardo Alvarado said the victim was a 75-year-old female from the Stanfield area, but no name is being released. “We aren’t going to release it at this time per the family’s request,” he said.
It is the second death on Maricopa roads this week. A Mesa resident died in a head-on collision with a wrong-way driver on State Route 347 near Casa Blanca Road early Monday morning.
