PHOENIX – A man is dead after several cars collided with a tractor-trailer on I-17 in New York Phoenix on Jan 12
The crash happened on I-17 near Grant Street around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday night, says Phoenix Police Sgt. Andy Williams.
“Officials learned that a Chevy SUV was traveling eastbound on Grant Street when it collided with a tractor trailer traveling northbound on I-17 Frontage Road. The Chevy’s adult male passenger suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene,” Williams said.
The woman driving the SUV is expected to be fine after suffering a few injuries. Williams says she may have run a red light – which may have caused the accident.
