Dump truck rolls, loses load on EB U.S. 60 at Val Vista

Posted: Updated:

MESA -- Eastbound U.S. 60 at Val Vista in Mesa was backed up for most of the morning because of a situation involving a box truck and a rolled dump truck. Aerial video showed the dump truck on its side with its load of dirt or gravel spilled all over the freeway.

The wreck was also a curiosity factor that's causing some serious slowing for westbound traffic.

The Department of Public Safety said there were also several secondary collisions.

The driver of the dump truck was transported for medical care.

All lanes were reopened shortly after 11 a.m.
