The Arizona Department Public Safety says three people are dead after their vehicle collided head-on with a wrong-way vehicle on Interstate 10 in western Arizona.

DPS spokesman Raul Garcia says the wreck occurred Saturday on westbound I-10 near Quartzsite when a vehicle used an exit ramp to enter the freeway and then collided with another vehicle about 500 feet (152 meters) from the exit ramp.

Garcia says the wrong-way driver was taken to a hospital. Information on the driver's condition isn't immediately available and no identities were released.

According to Garcia, "impairment has not been ruled out."
