Police say Riley was driving the wrong way in the westbound lanes of the divided highway when his vehicle missed a semi, then collided head-on with a car driven by Fouts. Her vehicle burst into flames. Officials say Riley and Fouts both died at the scene. They were the sole occupants of their cars. Investigators are trying to determine where Riley entered the expressway, and how fast the victims’ cars were going at the time of the crash.
