I was curious about that too. I got stuck in it going South at about 3 pm and turned around back to I-40 and through Prescott to get back to Phoenix. I was told it was a semi overturned and the wait would be 4 hrs. The whole trip was 8 hrs from Vegas to Phoenix!! Yuck.

I was right behind the accident. It was a 2 car accident on the 93/95. Alot of people turned around thinking it would take a bit before things coulg get going. It happened at 1:07 pm and we got back on the road about 3:15. It was a head on, someone trying to pass...I believe a mother to a young boy died, and al the rest got air lifted or didn't make it out. Very sad. I can't seem to find anything on it though either.

We were on 93 headed south when we hit the stopped traffic at 2:50pm we moved about 200 yards in an hour and stopped. Finally turned around to go I-40 Prescott at 4:45pm. It definitely took longer than "a bit". Very sad indeed. In this day and age of twitter and media it is amazing we can't find any info on this accident that caused a 20 mile backup and 4 hour delay?

We were also just behind it, about 12 cars or so. It was very sad, When I saw the two cars I felt sick. It would have been a miracle for anyone to survive it. I have been trying to find info on the occupants as well, and can't. I understand the woman who died was alone, but have no idea who was in the other car. I hope whomever it was survived.

I've been looking for news about this accident and no luck. I was on my way to Avondale from Vegas when I got stuck in traffic on the US93. I was maybe 1/2 mile from the accident and decided to wait till it got cleared. I was parked for about 3 hours! I saw the crashed cars pass by me, they were destroyed! I also saw a medical examiner vehicle pass by which was not good. I think it was almost 5pm when we finally started moving.Does anyone know how many people died for sure?

It is very sad...and am thankful for making it home safely too. I hope that it wasn't someone trying to pass and caused a head-on. It can be a scary trip with some jerks that are willing to risk theirs and others lives to shave off 30 minutes of a 5 hr drive. We turned around at 4:30...with two kids in the car under 5 we needed to keep the car moving. Thanks for the info...yeah its crazy that you can't find any info about it.

I cannot believe that all most of you were worried about was how long you got stuck in traffic, and how many hours it added to your trip!!! Do any of you realize that people were seriously, very seriously hurt in this accident? Is your time more precious than life itself? Most of you should be ashamed of yourselves and get your priorities straight!!!

Will, I tried to stress the seriousness in the matter to all the people that were in the car with me, but I guess when you see the news on a daily basis with all the killings,drownings,and fatal collisions, we grow numb to the fact that any one can die at any second. I took it hard, I was seriously happy to go back to my crappy job the next day, and do it with a smile, because who ever was close enough to see the accident knows it could have been any of us laying on the pavement... IAnd I too was one of the one taking the Flagstaff detour adding many hours to our trip home(I was just glad to make it back)...

People were killed in the accident and others seriously injured....Alot of these comments were about time lost...WHAT ABOUT THE LIVES LOST AND THE FAMILY THAT WILL NEVER SEE THRIR LOVED ONE AGAIN!! WHAT ABOUT THE FAMILY THAT HAS TO SPEND COUNTLESS HOURS IN THE HOSPITAL?? LIVES WERE CHANGED THAT DAY....I WOULD RATHER SPEND 4 HOURS IN TRAFFIC THAN TO HAVE ANY FAMILY TO ENDURE WHAT THEY NOW HAVE TO FACE!! W A K E U P !!! MY PRAYERS ARE WITH ALL OF THE FAMILYS...

Im just glad that they are home or making it home to you and yours..Ive been reading these post since day one, but I was'nt sure how to respond. Then I noticed how others dont really care untill it happens to them,Then at that time they exspect every one to understand what there going through... Your sister was blessed that day with a second chance in life. Dont ever let her forget that....

She nor the other 2 passengers are home and it will be a very long time before they get to go home, but they will. As of this date they are still in the hospital. With very long recovery roads ahead.

so from this posting there were 3 people in the other car - I am so glad to hear they survived - it was a miracle - I hope their recovery is faster then expected and they are home soon with their families - I can relate to your anguish - my husband also was given a second chance a few years ago, an accident like this one that no one could believe was survivable - miracles do happen and I am glad there was one here

I am one of the survivors of the accident. I am grateful to be alive. I thank God daily for all of the prayers and well wishes. Unfortunately the driver of the other car died. The 3 of us in our vehicle survived with major injuries, but survived nonetheless. The young lady who died was driving erratically and lost control and we hit her. So sad.
