I-10 re-opens following crash near Arizona-New Mexico border

Eastbound Interstate 10 has re-opened after a crash involving two semi-trucks closed it near the Arizona-New Mexico border on Wednesday.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says the closure extended nearly 50 miles near the border. I-10 was closed for eastbound traffic at US 191, near mile post 352 and the closure ends just before the New Mexico state line at mile post 389.

The freeway was closed for several hours and re-opened just before 7 a.m.

Drivers were advised to take US 191 north to US 70 in Safford, then follow US 70 east to return to I-10 at Lorsdburg, N.M.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says there are injuries in the collision.
