WICKENBURG, Ariz. (AP) -- The main highway link between Las Vegas and Phoenix is temporarily closed in western Arizona because of a two-vehicle accident that killed two people.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says U.S. 93 is closed in both directions between Wickenburg and Wikieup because of the head-on collision Thursday morning.

A television news image showed two passenger vehicles just off the highway. They were upright but with smashed-in front ends.

The accident occurred 35 miles northwest of Wickenburg.
