VIDEO: Crash in Southeast Arizona Closes Part of I-10

 March 16th, 2011

BENSON, Ariz. - A crash involving two big rigs has closed part of Interstate 10 in southeast Arizona.

The Department of Public Safety said a truck carrying lettuce and a truck carrying electronics collided underneath the overpass bridge in the eastbound lanes of I-10 at Exit 297, the exit for J-6 Ranch Road and Mescal Road in Cochise County.

No fatalities have been reported, but the highway remains closed in both directions at the crash scene.
Authorities are concerned a fire may have compromised the structural integrity of the overpass bridge, so vehicles will not be allowed to drive on or under the bridge until an inspector can assess the situation. [source]
