Phoenix, AZ (September 5, 2019) – On Wednesday night, September 4th, police responded to the scene of a truck accident that led to the fatality of one person on Interstate 10.
The accident, according to police, took place during strong winds in the area, which caused many drivers to lose control. The accident took place around 8 p.m. The Arizona Department of Public Safety reported that strong winds blew two eastbound trucks pulling box trailers into the westbound lanes.
