U.S. Highway 60 west of Superior has one lane open after a crash at milepost 224, according to an e-mail from the Arizona Department of Transportation sent shortly after noon today, July 19.

Traffic will alternate in the westbound lane to get by the crash site.

The highway had closed in both directions for a crash.

Two commercial vehicles and three passenger cars were involved in the collision, according to a post on the Arizona Department of Public Safety Twitter feed. One truck was leaking fuel.

Two injured people were transported from the scene, according to DPS.

A tow truck was called to the scene to remove the trucks and get at least one lane open, ADOT spokesman Peter Corbett said in an e-mailed response to questions.
