Phoenix Crashes involved 69 Vehicles

The Associated Press reported that 69 vehicles in Phoenix were involved in at least three separate crashes on an interstate near the Phoenix downtown area during Saturday evening. Officers say that the accidents left several people injured and that two people suffered serious injuries. Six individuals had to be taken to local hospitals and several others were treated at the scene of the accident after suffering minor injuries.

The state's Department of Public Safety said a five-mile stretch of Interstate 10 had to be closed until 6:30 PM. The road was blocked off at Washington Street near downtown Phoenix. And on duty officer from DPS said the cause of the auto accidents still had not been determined.

40 people involved in the accidents still remained on the interstate for several hours after collisions. Authorities were seen handing out snacks and water and keeping people in air conditioned city buses until arrangements could be made to transport individuals home.

Police say they will continue to investigate to see what sparked the crashes.
