PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say one person was killed in a two-vehicle collision that closed a Phoenix freeway during the beginning of the Friday morning commute.

The crash closed westbound Loop 202 at 32nd Street. The state Department of Public Safety advised motorists to use State Route 143 to reach McDowell Road and return to Loop 202 at 24th Street, and the Department of Transportation said alternative routes include U.S. 60 and Interstate 10.

DPS Capt. Damon Cecil says a passenger in a small SUV was ejected and killed when the SUV overturned after colliding with a car that went through a construction zone at high speed early Friday morning.

Cecil says the SUV passenger wasn’t wearing a seat belt.
