DPS: Car struck patrol vehicle while troopers were clearing another crash scene on US 60

A crash resulted in the closure of the three right lanes of US 60 westbound at Power Road on Monday.

DPS Sgt. Kameron Lee says troopers were on scene of a rollover collision in the area the morning of April 26 where a vehicle struck the guardrail and rolled. They were in the cleanup stage and had the right lane blocked with a patrol SUV to clean and clear the crash. The lights on the patrol SUV were activated. 

A Department of Public Safety SUV that rolled over was seen on an Arizona Department of Transportation camera. 

Then at approximately 5:19 a.m., the driver of Toyota sedan struck the rear of the unoccupied patrol SUV causing it roll. No troopers were injured.

The driver of the Toyota sedan was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
