Three people were killed in a crash on Interstate 10 near Picacho Saturday evening and eastbound lanes remain closed.

An Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman did not know when the roadway would reopen.

The crash occurred near milepost 213, about two miles east of State Route 84, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Drivers should consider delaying travel or taking an alternate route. Phoenix drivers headed to Tucson may take State Route 87 (Country Club) south to State Route 287 south to State Route 79 south to State Route 77 south into the Tucson area.
