CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a woman driving the wrong way on Interstate 10 in Casa Grande was seriously injured in a head-on collision with a commercial truck.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the woman showed signs of impairment and would be arrested once she was released from a hospital where she was taken for treatment after the Wednesday evening wreck.

Her identity was not released.

According to DPS, the woman's vehicle collided with a truck while traveling eastbound in westbound lanes and that a third vehicle struck the truck after the initial head-on wreck.

The other two drivers were treated at the scene for minor injuries.
