Serious crash leads to hours-long closure of US 60

Posted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. -

A serious crash closed westbound lanes of US 60 in Tempe Thursday evening. It finally reopened at 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

About 5 p.m., someone driving a Mercedes suffered a medical issue and crashed into an Avalanche truck occupied by three people.

All four people involved were injured -- three suffered life-threatening injuries. The fourth was hurt but not as severely.

The driver of the Mercedes underwent surgery and remains in critical condition.

From SkyFOX, we saw the drivers caught in that traffic mess turning around and trying to travel the opposite direction.
