A man is dead after a multi-car crash involving a tractor-trailer on I-17 in Phoenix on Jan. 12.

The crash happened on I-17 near Grant Street on Wednesday night around 6:30 p.m, says Phoenix Police Sgt. Andy Williams.

"Officers learned a Chevy SUV was eastbound on Grant Street when it collided with a Tractor Trailer that was Northbound on the I-17 Frontage Road. The adult male passenger of the Chevy sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene," Williams explained.
