PEORIA, Ariz. (AP/FOX 10) — A 2-mile (3.2-kilometer) stretch of a freeway was closed during the Friday morning commute as police responded to an incident that involved a reported altercation and a car crash that sent at least one person to a hospital.

There was a large police presence in the area as paramedics treated at least one person on the freeway side of a drainage channel where a crashed car sat on the other side.

Lee said authorities are investigating what led to the crash and the altercation between the woman, who was in her early 30s, and the man, who was in his early 20s.

Later in the morning, Department of Public Safety Col. Frank Milstead tweeted that troopers were investigating the crash and a homicide case on L-101 at Thunderbird.

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, traffic can reenter at Thunderbird. There is no estimated time to reopen the freeway.

They were both transported to separate hospitals, where the woman died of her wounds. The man’s condition was not known.
