PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A traffic accident on I-10 near the Salt River Bridge in Phoenix shut down the westbound lanes of the freeway for over an hour Saturday evening. The freeway has since re-opened.

Arizona Department of Transportation officials say a serious crash closed all lanes of the freeway near 32nd Street around 7 p.m.

Officials with the Arizona Department of Public Safety say one person was ejected from the vehicle during the single car accident.

Phoenix Fire Department spokesman, Capt. Rob McDade, said five people were taken to the hospital after the wreck.

One of the injured, a 17-year-old man, was in very serious condition, says McDade. Other injuries were considered minor.

All traffic was taken off the freeway at the University Drive exit.

There were heavy delays from the U.S 60 transition ramp to the accident area.

Okay this is my 17 year old cousin you guys are talking about he was in the back seat with his sibling asleep cuz they were coming back from a water park if you don’t have anything nice to say or your opinion is garbage just leave. He is in critical but stable condition at the moment. Just keep him in your prayers please


A 17 year old is not a man. A kid. Probably on his phone endangering the lives of everyone around him.


He was asleep in the back seat not on his phone. He is my cousin so please don’t assume stuff.


Collisions are not accidents.


Sounds like a chain reaction accident[scared]


and you figure that out from a news article that has absolutely nothing about the accident other than a stupid kid being thrown from the car. You're a brilliant dumb azz
