Phoenix, AZ (September 13, 2019) – An accident on Friday afternoon resulted in at least one injury and several damaged vehicles on Interstate 10.
Per information from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, a white pickup truck and a silver SUV collided in the HOV lane of eastbound I-10 at the 40th Street on-ramp. According to reports, the pickup truck rear-ended the SUV, due to severe stop-and-go traffic. Phoenix police and fire rescue units responded to the wreck shortly after it occurred, around 5:45 p.m., and transported at least one victim to an area hospital.
The Phoenix Police Department is still investigating the crash at this time and has not released further details about the victims.
