TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say a dust storm moving through southern Arizona is being blamed for a four-vehicle accident on Interstate 10 near Picacho Peak.

Four people were taken to Tucson-area hospitals, but DPS officials say none of the injuries are life-threatening.

They say the westbound lane of I-10 at Picacho Road is partially blocked and there's no immediate word on when the wreckage can be cleared.
