CAMERON (AP) — Six people have died in a head-on collision on a northern Arizona highway.
The Department of Public Safety says the collision happened Saturday evening on U.S. 89.
Authorities haven't released the identities of the six people who were killed. DPS spokesman Quentin Mehr said Monday that troopers are working to notify family.
The collision occurred at 5:11 p.m when a red Kia passenger car collided head on with a black Hyundai passenger car. There were 2 fatalities in the Kia and 4 in the Hyundai, Mehr said.
DPS director Col. Frank Milstead says the collision was one of several over a 24-hour period in which 10 people died.
U.S. 89 was shut down for hours Saturday, forcing some drivers to detour onto a snow-packed dirt road.
