Fatal crash closes I-10 westbound south of Chandler - When will Arizona finally wake up?
(8/29/18) A fatal crash involving a commercial vehicle on fire has closed Interstate 10 westbound south of Chandler from Riggs Road to Loop 202 Santan, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
"Preliminary information is at about 9:52 a.m. a commercial vehicle was eastbound on I-10 when it veered into the median. The commercial vehicle went through the median and onto the westbound lanes of I-10 where it struck three vehicles. After striking the vehicles the commercial vehicle ran off the road, overturning and catching fire. At this time there are two fatalities. The driver of the commercial vehicle has been transported from the scene with serious injuries.
When is the state of Arizona highway department going to wake up?
With this crash, hundreds of people have now died on Arizona time ways from these crossover crashes.  In February 2012, A Maricopa County jury awarded a family $7.8 million for a crossover crash that happened very close to this one.
 The message to the Arizona state highway department was clear: Fix the highways!  
The state did not listen.  Then, in December 2015, Maricopa County jury awarded two families nearly $45 million, sending an even clearer message to the state:
Fix the highway!!!  After that, all the state did be put up a few measly signs. Real after that, all the state did was put up a few measly signs. 
Really?????  
Median barriers should have gone up on Interstate 10 fifteen years ago. Had this been done, hundreds of lives would have been saved and millions of state dollars would have been saved.  
It is time that someone truly teaches the state the expensive lesson that it obviously needs to learn to make the highways safe.  How much must a jury award for the state to get it?  
We may be about to find out.
