Maricopa Police block off State Route 347 Sunday afternoon after a rollover crash on the median of the highway between the city limits and Casa Blanca Road forced a closure.

MARICOPA — Both directions of State Route 347 were closed between the Maricopa city limits and Casa Blanca Road following reports of a fatal crash.

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the crash occurred around 1 p.m. Sunday at milepost 177, about halfway between Cobblestone Farms in Maricopa and Casa Blanca Road. Initially, the southbound left lane was the only one closed, but all lanes in both directions were closed soon after.

Around 5 p.m., ADOT announced that the right southbound lane had reopened, but the rest remained closed. About an hour later, the other lanes reopened.

In a tweet, the Gila River Police Department reported that this was a single-vehicle rollover that occurred on the median of the highway, and the Pinal Emergency Notification System sent out an alert that the crash included a fatality.
