PHOENIX (AP) — A mile-long stretch of Phoenix freeway remains closed during the beginning of the Friday morning commute because of a serious two-vehicle wreck.

Southbound Interstate 17 is closed between Dunlap and Northern avenues in northwest Phoenix, with traffic being detoured onto the frontage road.

The state Department of Public Safety says a driver has life-threatening injuries after being ejected when his pickup overturned after colliding with another vehicle.

Northbound I-17 is unaffected.
