PHOENIX, AZ – The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) has released the identities of the four people who were killed on June 9 in a fiery, multi-vehicle collision involving a milk tanker on Loop 202.
This is an update to a previous news story.
According to a press release from the AZDPS, the crash claimed the lives of 35-year-old Sedeqwa Keyara-Parker and 21-year-old Alexius Hooper, both from Phoenix, and 20-year-old Dante Brubeck and 20-year-old Jennifer Vidal, both of Casa Grande.
The crash happened on Loop 202 Red Mountain, near 52nd and Van Buren Streets, at about 10 p.m.
A truck pulling a tanker filled with milk crashed into seven other vehicles after reportedly failing to brake for traffic congestion. The impact caused the tanker to separate from the rest of the truck and sent it over the median and into the opposite lanes. The tanker came to rest on its side in the HOV lane. The truck then caught fire.
Besides the four people who were killed in the crash, nine others were taken to the hospital.
A woman in her 20s, two men in their 20s, a 22-year-old man, a 45-year-old man, and a 42-year-old woman sustained critical, severe wounds in the accident.
Also injured were a 23-year-old man, a 22-year-old man, and a 6-year-old girl, who suffered non-critical wounds.
One person was treated at the scene.
Authorities have determined that the truck driver was not under the influence when the crash happened.
