one person there ejected and unfortunately died. the causes of both the crashes are now under investigation. let's go ahead and check in with our traffic expert mallory moore. yeah, allison, and just as that was re-opening, we have another closure in the west valley, loop 303 southbound closed at i-10 because of an early morning crash. opening that shortly. hop up indian school and maybe take bullard until they re-open the ramp. the i-10 at 15th, looking busier but not too bad for eastbound drivers but there was a crash at 51st and it looks like it has cleared up, and that's why you are probably seeing heavier traffic. iris? mallory, the good news is we are not adding rain to the mix this morning but did you
