Driver crashes head-on with semi

PHOENIX - A man is fighting for his life after his car and a semi-truck collided along the Carefree Highway.

According to the Department of Public Safety, the man driving the car crashed head-on with a Safeway delivery truck.

DPS was forced to shut down part of the highway on Saturday at Castle Springs Road while they worked to clear the scene.

DPS spokesperson Sgt. Johnson tells 3TV, "The passenger car sustained major damage. I can't tell you anything about seat belts but that man is lucky to be alive tonight."

The road was re-opened late Saturday night. The semi driver was not injured.

It is not yet clear what caused the wreck.
