Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Department of Public Safety closed westbound US 60 at Priest and westbound I-10 at Baseline Road due to an overturned semi.

DPS is not sure how the semi-truck flipped, but it did collide with an SUV.

The truck was carrying 47,000 pounds of rubber, which will take some time to remove from the freeway.

Fortunately only minor injuries were reported in the crash.
