NEAR SURPRISE, Ariz. – Two medical helicopters and two ground ambulances were called to a head-on wreck on Loop 303 near Northern Avenue early Monday morning.

It happened at about 5 a.m. The crash forced the Department of Public Safety to close Loop 303 in both directions for a time.

Few details were immediately available, but aerial video from the scene showed a badly mangled Pathfinder in the dirt off the side of the road.

Four people were transported from the scene – two by air and two by ground. The nature of their injuries was not known.

Loop 303 was closed between Northern and Glendale avenues for about two hours but has since re-opened.

The wreck is under investigation.

Information will be updated as it becomes available.
