MARICOPA -- A single vehicle wreck on State Route 347, the only route out of Maricopa, backed up traffic out of the town Wednesday morning.

Traffic backup

A truck with a trailer carrying a backhoe slammed into a pole near Riggs Road between Maricopa and Chandler.

The driver suffered minor injuries.

While cars were able to get by in all directions, the wreck was a curiosity that spawned a fairly large backup.
