PHOENIX — Video footage of a wrong-way driver who died in the Tuesday night crash shows he barreled through a parking garage gate before getting on a Phoenix freeway.
In a video posted Thursday by the Arizona Department of Public Safety, security cameras show the driver of a red sedan travelling against traffic on a freeway near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
Time stamps indicate the driver drove against freeway traffic for at least four minutes before taking a ramp onto State Route 51, where the driver collided head-on with a white sedan.
Both drivers were killed and a third driver was injured.
The wrong-way driver narrowly avoided a pedestrian near the airport and circled a Sky Harbor parking lot for about a minute before driving onto airport roads.
