A man and woman were killed in a Wednesday afternoon crash on State Route 347 and Riggs Road, north of Maricopa.

A female victim was flown to Chandler Regional Hospital but later died.

A 67-year-old male died at the scene.

Apparently, there were two vehicles stopped at the intersection at southbound SR 347 at Riggs Road in the number one lane. A third vehicle, driven by the male victim, struck both stopped vehicles. 

That driver was not wearing a seatbelt. He suffered major head trauma and was declared dead at the scene.

The female driver of one of the other vehicles was flown to the hospital but did not survive.

The third driver was treated for neck pain. 

The roadway was shut down for a short time but has since reopened.
