MOHAVE COUNTY, Ariz. — Seven people were involved in a single-vehicle crash near Littlefield, Arizona, on Saturday.

Bart Graves, Arizona’s Department of Public Safety spokesman, told KSL the crash happened on Interstate 15 at mile marker 19 at approximately 1:36 p.m.

Graves said the car was traveling southbound when it collided with the median barrier, crossed both southbound lanes, and hit a guardrail.

He said three of the seven occupants of the car were ejected. Two people died on the scene, one was flown to a St. George hospital, and the other four occupants had minor injuries and declined medical transport.

GoFundMe confirmed the identities of the two killed as Mercedes Torreblanca* and Guadalupe “Lupita” Montalvo*.

Graves said the road was closed for several hours and no other vehicles were involved in the crash. Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
