SURPRISE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A deadly crash that involved four vehicles closed southbound Grand Avenue near 163rd Avenue in Surprise. The crash happened just before 11:30 a.m. Monday, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, which has confirmed a person died in the wreck.

Troopers originally said that there were three vehicles involved in the crash but later updated the number to four. It all happened when a Penske box truck hit a Toyota car, injuring two and pushing the car into the desert. Then, the truck hit a Nissan Altima sedan, killing the Nissan driver.

The Penske truck driver has been taken to the hospital, and troopers say that they are investigating whether or not there was possible impairment involved. The injuries sustained by the Toyota driver and passenger are unknown, and the semi-truck driver was not injured.

Grand Avenue was closed in both directions at 163rd Avenue, just west of Loop 303 as the detectives investigated the crash.
