PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say three people from Indonesia have been killed and three passengers suffered seriously injures in an Arizona Interstate 17 collision after their minivan was struck by wrong-way driver's car.
   
The state Department of Public Safety officials said 50-year-old Evan Christian Hendriadi (HEHN'-drih-AH-dee), 70-year-old Jenny Sudjono and 78-year-old Lioe Kim Tjhiuw (lee-OH-EE KIM tjuh-HI-ow) died in the crash.
   
Three others, including a 9 years-old from Indonesia, suffered serious injuries.
   
The wrong-way fatal accident was the second in five days in Arizona.
   
In Friday's crash, officials say the wrong-way vehicle drove at least 20 miles northbound on southbound lanes before it collided with the rented minivan about 30 miles north of Phoenix.
   
The driver of the wrong-way car, a Phoenix man, also was injured and his name has not been released.
