Although the northbound lanes remained open throughout the investigation and cleanup, the Arizona Department of Public Safety tweeted that there were traffic delays because of “the curiosity factor.”

Details about the crash were not immediately available, but early reports were that a pedestrian was involved.

Maricopa is about 45 minutes south of Phoenix.
