3 GCU Students Die after Multi-Vehicle Wrong-Way Crash on Interstate 17 in New River

New River, AZ (October 10, 2022) – Early Monday morning, three GCU students died in a multi-vehicle wrong-way crash on Interstate 17.

The fatal multi-vehicle crash in New River happened at around 3:51 a.m. at milepost 236 near Table Mesa Road.

DPS said a vehicle driving south in the northbound lanes crashed into other vehicles traveling northwards.

Reportedly, the collision was caused by a wrong-way driver. As a result, three students of Grand Canyon University died. GCU identified the deceased as Abriauna Hoffman, 18, Hunter Balberdi, 19, and 18-year-old Magdalyn (Maggie) Ogden

All three were freshmen at the university and lived together in the Diamondback Residence Hall.

Two of the students died at the scene, and the third died later after being taken to a hospital in critical condition.

Meanwhile, EMS took the single occupant of the wrong-way vehicle to the hospital in unknown condition. 

Moreover, officials said that the other two vehicles only carried one person each, and both of those drivers’ injuries weren’t life-threatening.

Investigators said that impairment hadn’t been ruled out as a factor in the crash.

Further investigation into this deadly crash is ongoing.
