Generic Crash

TONOPAH, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Six children were thrown from a vehicle following a crash on the highway in Tonopah Monday evening. One of those kids was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

DPS says the three-vehicle collision happened just after 5 p.m. on westbound Interstate 10 near 411th Avenue.

Both westbound lanes of the I-10 were closed to allow a medical helicopter to land. A second medical helicopter landed a few minutes after the first one left. Drivers were urged to use caution in the area.

Both lanes have reopened but the traffic backup remained.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
