TONOPAH, Ariz. (AP) -- Crews picked up dozens of packages after a FedEx tractor-trailer rolled over on Interstate 10 about 50 miles west of downtown Phoenix.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say packages were scattered across the freeway after the accident about 10:30 a.m. Thursday near Tonopah.

They say the big rig's front trailer was torn open on the right side while its back trailer was almost entirely ripped open.

The cause of the rollover isn't immediately clear, but DPS officials say the rig's driver escaped injury.

The accident closed one lane of the freeway for several hours.
