CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have identified a woman who reportedly drove an SUV the wrong way on the State Route 202 freeway in Chandler and caused two collisions.
Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say 51-year-old Theresa Jordan of Phoenix remains hospitalized with a fractured sternum after Monday night’s crash.
DPS troopers have determined that impairment wasn’t a factor and it appears Jordan was confused and without her glasses.
Her SUV collided with a pickup truck and then with another vehicle when Jordan tried to turn around after entering the freeway and going eastbound in westbound lanes.
The DPS says the first collision caused the pickup to roll over and the SUV struck the other vehicle.
Authorities say the driver of the pickup is hospitalized for multiple broken bones from the waist down.
