TONOPAH, Ariz. - Interstate 10 has reopened east of Tonopah after a deadly crash involving a semi truck early Thursday morning.
The collision happened just before 3 a.m. near Hassayampa River, according to the Arizona Dept. of Public Safety.
Officials say a van hauling a trailer and a semi were both heading eastbound on I-10 when the semi truck rear-ended the other vehicle's trailer.
It is unknown what specifically caused the crash, but the driver of the van reportedly said they felt "a loss of control" while driving in the moments before the collision.
