Two people have been hospitalized when their car burst into flames after a single car accident off Interstate-17 and Deer Valley.  Fire Captain Benjamin Santillan says a 23-year-old man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and a 21-year-old man suffered serious injuries.  It appears the driver slammed into the

median in the roundabout causing the car to go up in flames.  Interstate-17 at Deer Valley was closed for several hours overnight.  The cause of the accident is unknown.  Impairment may have been a factor.  Santillan says there were a lot of accident caused by drunk drivers last night who were out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.
