Phoenix, Arizona—Romsen Badalpour, age 35, was killed on Friday in a wrong-way crash in Phoenix.

Accident investigators with the Phoenix Police Department report that Mr. Badalpour was exiting the I-17 at Greenway Road when a wrong-way vehicle collided with him head-on. He was conscious at the scene responding to paramedics, who rushed him to HonorHealth Deer Valley Medical Center. Mr. Badalpour underwent emergency surgery due to significant bleeding, but doctors were unable to save him.

Police have identified Marshall Wray, age 38, as wrong-way driver. They have not stated whether they believe impairment was a factor.

ADOT has struggled to design freeways to address what has become an epidemic with wrong-way drivers. A task force formed in 2017 made certain recommendations, including the installation of "wrong way" warning signs at certain off-ramps and a wrong-way driver detection system along 15 miles of the I-17.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Romsen Badalpour's family and friends as they grieve this tragic loss.
