Semi crash closes I-10 eastbound lanes near Quartzsite


12/11/14 - A semi-truck wreck on Interstate 10 about 20 miles east of Quartzsite closed the eastbound lanes Thursday morning, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The driver was not injured, but the wrecked semi had leaked fuel all over the roadway, said Tim Case, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety.

ADOT encouraged drivers to seek alternate routes, including U.S. Route 60 eastbound 10 miles east of Quartzsite.

The closure is reported at milepost 42, according to the department. There is no estimated time for lanes to reopen.
