PARKS, Ariz. (AP) - Three people were injured after three semi tractor-trailers were involved in a crash on Interstate 40 near Flagstaff, authorities said Sunday.
Ponderosa Fire Department officials said the crash occurred about 10 p.m. Saturday near Parks, located about 20 miles (32 kilometers) west of Flagstaff.
Authorities said three people had to be extricated from the big rigs and one person was airlifted to a hospital with the other two transported by ground.
Photos from the crash scene showed one big truck tipped on its side and the other semi-trucks with extensive front damage.
