May 11, 2019

PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities say a 16-year-old girl killed in a rollover wreck on Interstate 10 in Phoenix was not wearing a seat belt, did not have a driver’s license and was driving a stolen truck at high speed when she lost control.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said Idaily Arellano-Nejaro was ejected Tuesday when the pickup stolen from a family member went through a cable barrier and flipped.

The wreck on a curve near the interchange with the State Route 51 and Loop 202 freeways closed westbound I-10 for over an hour Thursday morning.

No other vehicles were involved and nobody else was injured.
