A man was killed in a crash on the Loop 202 Red Mountain in Phoenix that closed the westbound side for hours, investigators said.

The lanes were shut down just west of State Route 51 around 5:30 p.m.

According to the Department of Public Safety, a pickup truck driver was heading west in the HOV lane when it rear-ended an SUV just before 6 p.m. That caused a chain-reaction crash that included three other vehicles.

The driver of the SUV was taken to the hospital where he later died. A passenger in the SUV was also hospitalized but with minor injuries.

On Wednesday, the Arizona Department of Public Safety identified the deceased man as 62-year-old Douglas A. Tornese of Scottsdale.

No one else was taken to the hospital.
