PHOENIX (AP) - Southbound Interstate 17 in Phoenix is closed due to a fatal car-pedestrian accident Thursday morning.
The closure on southbound I-17 is just north of where I-17 splits off from Interstate 10 south of downtown.
Southbound traffic on I-17 is being taken off the freeway at 16th Street.
The Department of Public Safety says the closure will extend well into the morning rush hour.
