Seven killed in July 29 crash on I-10 identified.

Fatal Crash near Burnt Wells Rest Area on I-10 kills seven

At 11 a.m. Sunday, July 29, a semi was traveling westbound on I-10 near the Burnt Wells Rest Area at milepost 87 when it crossed through the median and struck a passenger car that was traveling eastbound. That crash pushed both vehicles into a culvert on the eastbound right shoulder and the vehicles caught on fire.

The first report indicated there were at least two fatalities. Two people were known to have been  airlifted to a valley hospital. Later reports indicated that seven were killed and two traveling in the semi were hospitalized.

On Friday, August 3, the Maricopa Medical Examiners Office identified the seven people killed in the crash. 
The names and ages of those seven people are:
Lanna Flood, 51
Tara Ferris, 32
Tylor Joe Harper, 16
Tori Sanchez, 13
Jullian Flores, 12
Damion Cuadras, 11
Dominic Cuadras, 10

Lanna Flood, Tara Ferris, Tylor Harper, Jullian Flores, Damion Cuadras and Dominic Cuadras are member of the Colorado River Indian Tribe.

DPS would like to thank the Colorado River Indian Tribe and the Colorado River Indian River Tribal Police for their help with providing critical details about the deceased so that their identities could be verified. DPS would also like to thank the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office.
