Phoenix, AZ (February 4, 2020) – A trailer carrying dirt, tree branches, and other materials rolled over inside the Interstate 10 tunnel in Phoenix early on Tuesday, resulting in at least one injury.
According to officers with the Phoenix Police Department, the load spread across two westbound lanes at Seventh Avenue shortly before 6:00 a.m. and collided with at least one other vehicle. Phoenix EMTs were at the scene to treat injured victims, though they did not release identifying information about those involved.
The tunnel was finally cleared around 8:00 a.m., though the accident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
There were almost 12,500 truck and bus accidents across Arizona in 2012, 97 of which resulted in deaths. Almost 2,728 crashes with trucks ended in at least one fatality, making truck collisions one of the most serious and dangerous threats that motorists encounter on the road.
