BUCKEYE VALLEY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A serious crash west of Phoenix tied up traffic in the area for hours, and left one person injured.

The crash happened on eastbound I-10 near SR 85 in Buckeye Valley.

It involved a tractor-trailer and passenger car.

The passenger car reportedly swerved and became stuck under the tractor trailer.
