Do you know what to do if you’re in an accident?
A Tempe man has been identified as the wrong-way driver who was killed in a car crash on the Loop 101 freeway in Scottsdale early Friday.
Rulon Beazer, 29, was headed north in the southbound lanes of the freeway about 12:15 a.m. when he struck a southbound vehicle south of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said.
Authorities received the first call reporting the wrong-way driver just one minute before the crash occurred, DPS spokesman Quentin Mehr said.
Beazer died at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle, a man, was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, DPS said.
Southbound lanes were closed from Cactus Road to Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard overnight and reopened around 6:30 a.m.
Ten people have been killed in eight wrong-way collisions so far this year in Arizona.
