PHOENIX (AP) -- A Phoenix Fire Department emergency dispatcher killed in a head-on car crash will be remembered by friends and family this week.

Funeral services for Megan Lange will be held Tuesday at Christ's Church of the Valley in Peoria.

Mayor Greg Stanton will give remarks at the service, which is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m.

Lange died Jan. 27 as she was headed home after her shift and her vehicle was struck by a wrong-way driver on Interstate 17.

The 26-year-old Lange leaves behind a husband and two small children - a 2-year-old son and 6-month-old son.

United Phoenix Firefighters are collecting donations to support her family through UPFFA Community Charities.

The suspected wrong-way driver, 39-year-old Stephen B. Martin, faces one count of second-degree murder and other charges.
