GILA RIVER RESERVATION, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — Two people were seriously hurt in a wrong-way crash early Friday morning near Casa Grande.

Just after 1 a.m., Gila River police and DPS troopers were alerted to multiple reports of a wrong-way driver traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 near state Route 387. Soon after, a head-on collision happened in the same area.

There was only one person in each vehicle, and both drivers were rushed to an area hospital in critical condition. Gila River police is investigating and says alcohol has not been ruled out as a possible factor.
