TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)-- A deadly rollover crash involving five vehicles has shut down a part of U.S. 60 in Tempe.

[PHOTOS: Serious rollover crash on westbound US 60 in Tempe]

The crash happened on westbound U.S. 60 at McClintock Drive in Tempe around 8:30 a.m.

According to DPS, a 49-year-old man was killed after he was ejected in the collision. The other drivers involved suffered minor injuries. 

DPS said that traffic congestion along with the driver failing to stop led to the crash.

Video from our news chopper showed three vehicles involved the crash, a large fire presence and ambulances. This also caused a huge traffic backup for the morning commute.

The westbound lanes of U.S. 60 were closed during the investigation but has since reopened. 

ADOT said that the right lane remains blocked as does the Loop 101 and Dobson Road on-ramps. The McClintock Drive exit ramp is also still closed at this time.

Collisions are not accidents. Can we all agree on that?

trsalemme

Yep. learned that in my 1 day at the security academy. ;) An accident suggests that there is no fault. in vehicle collisions, there is ALWAYS someone at fault.

nutsplash

Security Academy now that's an oxymoron.

nutsplash

Cell Phones and self important dummies are the problem on these roads.
Can't fix stupid folks. Society is sliding into the abyss quickly.

nutsplash

You all need to get over yourselves. You really are not that important or better or worse than anyone else for that matter. Pound sand folks.

"remarks" belongs in the 2nd sentence . . . sorrt

I'd hate to see this site disappear like the last one because it had devolved into a name-calling yelling match. When that happens, all the people who contribute interesting, well thought out, or just plain funny all leave. That leaves tresammes & Cosmic Rays screaming at each other. We have an election year coming up and at this rate, this site won't be here for anyone at all.

trsalemme

Funny, JFColon, that YOU would say something like that.

One guy on here has called me names and threatened to unload his magazine into me and two, friends of my choice. He mocked my name and called me "fat pig slob" or similar. He used that as a prelude into a veiled insinuation which I understood, he was referencing a scene from a Ned Beatty/Burt Reynolds movie. He, the big man with a gun, me, the pig. I only came here to make friends and practice my writing and this guy, who I won't name out of fear he will escalate the abuse, has gone out of his way to make me feel unwelcome. I mean, this is Arizona's Family, isn't it? If I had a Corvette and Harley and daughter with full ride at Stanford University and two boys in the military and career in law enforcement, I think I would not be stepping on the little people that show up here to express their views. Thanks for letting me vent, I'm sure we will all become a more cohesive family when some of this dysfunctional cancer is removed.

Honestly, your obsession with my life is getting old. You talk more about me than I do. I only mention it when commenting on similar topics. You do it, and it just makes you look petty. And in case you forgot, I told you I would blast you if you ever threatened me or my family. That goes for ANYONE. Augustus G. ( who is a fat slob BTW. I saw the movie too) is not special in that regard. Moving on to next topic....

Daddy

Agust -LMAAAAO, you're hilarious and full of schyt. You're passive aggressive and bait people to 'attack' you so that you can then play the victim. You're not that good at it. Your manipulative game needs work, you're too obvious. You just came here to make friends, HAHAHAHAHA. You had to be laughing when you keyed those words. I know everyone else laughed when they read them. Bottom line is, shut up goofball, this is the internet...its not for the thin skinned youould expect harsh treatment here.

Agustus Gloop

Hey Daddy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bring it, bring your harsh treatment. I may be a small man but I grew up on the west side of town. So many palm trees where I come from, on the west side. You can even call me names, maybe D-Breath or something worse? Bring it hard Daddy, I want to be known as the Little West Sider That Could. You bring it as long and strong as you can Daddy, I won’t cry about it later, I promise. We still good for our road trip to cut down the native palms?

Daddy

Aghast - Hahahahaha the west slider that could. You're trollin' is hilarious. Go cut down those telephone poles with the scraggly bush on top and plant an oak or an elm instead. Hey, do you know Dbreath? Go give him some dbreath and tell him to stop sniveling.

Agustus Gloop

Hey Daddy!!!!!!!!!!!
Very disappointed with you, this Wonderful Wednesday. It's early and you have time to redeem yourself. Two, issue I take with you on this beautiful day. Today we celebrate our relationship with a little give and take. I digress, first, plant non native trees (oak or elm) in this harsh, desert climate? C'mon, you're better than that. Second, how about you drop the name calling on "DJamz?" How about that, Daddy? You are a decent fellow and everybody should know that about you. With the name calling, you look kinda like a bad person. You drop the name calling and ask something of me, in return. How bout it Daddy? Hey Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Hey Daddy!!!!!!

Shredder

Seriously?

That's a thin skin coward's way of doing things.

Agustus Gloop

Hey Daddy!!!!
I definitely don't want to be labeled a TSC, by you, or any of your people. No button pushing by this west sider.

The one thing I know about this road and surrounding roads (101, 202, I-10 etc.) is that there are some really bad drivers out there. Just in the past 6 months I've seen hundreds of close calls and daily accidents on these roads. Arizona has some of the worst drivers in the USA if not the world. I don't know if its speed or what but something here attracts bad drivers. I still love AZ but geesh I hope things get better.

nutsplash

Yeah but how high is up then ?

nutsplash

trsalemme - you are clearly dumb as a rock and have absolutely no clue about what happened and likely about life in general. Tool !

trsalemme

Actualy , I have a really good clue. Again, I don't post if I don't know, r have a clue. So my general area is a tiny bit off. Im having a hard time bringing up a good detailed map of that area...but the sequence of events I stated may be close. I cant say for sure, since im not there to study the debris field, the gouge marks left at the point of impact, or the rotational skid marks left by the tires. Thsoe are terms used in Technical Crash Investigation training, FYI. Training that I have received. That's why I didn't say THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. Again, why do people feel the need to legitimize their own ignorance, but doubting others? So sad.

Agustus Gloop

If I ever get into an automobile accident with my automobile, and they blame me and I blame them, will you investigate and be my expert witness?

trsalemme

As they add updates, it looks like it was in fact NOT a wrong way incident. Good thing I never claimed it WAS one. I suggested it was a possibility, based on the zero info that was available at the time. Just practicing Liberal Media 101 ;)

BlogDog

Great -trsalemme is a Liberal... that explains it.. He thinks he knows everything. [ban]

trsalemme

I said I was practicing liberal media 101. THANK GOD i am not one.

Daddy

Man, they're attacking you today trs. Did you p*ss somebody off, what's going on? Lol.

trsalemme

dude....its unreal. I really don't have a problem with debates or arguments or whatever, with people who want to do the same, in SOME form of intelligent manner. But as you are witnessing....these trolls REALLY must hate their own lives, to be questioning mine ALL OF THE TIME. LOL If they don't want me to mention my own experiences, TOO BAD. I use them as a foundation for my comments. And I will continue. If that means they will continue to make envious, sarcastic, baseless remarks, then we will just have to deal with it I guess.

Agustus Gloop

I always come to you, Tom, for informed, intelligent talk.

nuusmaan

But you did say this: "That truck is positioned quite suspiciously. Obviously, force of impact can rotate a vehicle around, to make it appear it was traveling in the opposite direction. That only happens, however, when two vehicles are in fact traveling in opposite directions, and collide at a slight angle, allowing some momentum to spin one or more of the vehicles around." And, as you know from your highway patrol days (and I know from High School physics), a blown tire or lots of different forces applied to the vehicle in other collision scenarios can cause it to spin (usually exacerbated by the driver's erroneous control (steering wheel, brake, throttle, gear shift) movements). Facts do not have any ideology. Opinions often do.

nutsplash

Tom is under the influence of fake COP power....thus fake news spews from his vomit vessel.

trsalemme

EXACTLY. nowhere in that statement did i profess to know what happened. i laid out a scenario. One,based on ZERO info. Liberal dumbas.es do it all the time. Thought id jump on the train. As more info came in, it said looks like it wasnt that type of crash. Also, im not sure what kind of "spin" YOU are referring to. A car will rarely spin from just a blown tire. To spin as i was suggesting, there has to be an impact of some sort, causing the momentum of the vehicle to be transferred to the part of the vehicle not restricted by the object it struck; causing the spin. A blown tire wont cause that. A blown tire WILL cause a swerving action, which can result in loss of control, and subsequent striking of an object with enough force to cause the kind of spin or rotation that i was implying. there are your facts. if you are unable to understand them, sorry. And yes. There is still almost no info, but if it was a rollover crash, as reported, then my GUESS is that the truck was the vehicle that rolled, and thats how it ended up facing that way.

Agustus Gloop

No name calling, clearly a violation of AZFamily Statute, paragraph 22, line 5. Tom (aka trsalemme) is a by the rules, law of the land, kinda guy. He's also a very loving and good natured anonymous comment contributor whom is triggered by outlaws, mavericks and rule breakers. He and I share a relationship that most are envious of. It's with this insight, I can assure you, Tom is highly smart, an intelligent genius. If you don't believe me, I'll ask Tom to post his transcripts.

nutsplash

You are a violation of society bruh.

trsalemme

So it looks like the crash took place on the ramp from the 101s to US60w. To the right of the photo, is the merge lane from 101n. That truck is positioned quite suspiciously. Obviously, force of impact can rotate a vehicle around, to make it appear it was traveling in the opposite direction. That only happens, however, when two vehicles are in fact traveling in opposite directions, and collide at a slight angle, allowing some momentum to spin one or more of the vehicles around. Looks like another wrong way driver?

BlogDog

Ha, Let me guess you watched Cops last night and now you think you know everything? who are you trying to impress with that lame jargon?

trsalemme

Oh boy. This article is dead nw.

1-I don't watch COP. I lived it, ( More like Real Stories of The Hwy Patrol) and in a way, still am.
2- Never once said or implied I know everything. But if my knowledge about some things threatens you, nothing I can do or say will ever change that.
3 - Im not trying to impress anyone. It would be nice, for a change, to have an actual conversation with someone here about this kind of stuff. I personally would be IMPRESSED, if someone like you, ignorant to what I was talking about, would just ask. Ignorance isn't all bad. It just means you aren't educated in that area. That's easy to rectify. When it comes to investment banking, and coding in C++, im an ignorant buffoon. In that same regard, you will NEVER catch me making comments about either of those, nor will I doubt the knowledge of those who make comments based on the fact they DO know.

Agustus Gloop

Did you know Bob Martin?

BlogDog

Clearly got to his feelers.. you aint no Hwy Patrol? OOOkayyy more like Stolen Valor..

trsalemme

Sad bunch of idiots. Never heard of a bob martin. But I got to meet Trooper Bobby Smith during my academy time in 2000. Quite a man.

Agustus Gloop

Bob Martin, murdered while patrolling the Beeline Hwy. There's a memorial for him, north side of the highway, east of the Verde river.

trsalemme

That's terrible. Since I wasn't Hwy Patrol in AZ ( and never said I was), I never came across that name, nor have I seen the memorial.

Agustus Gloop

I travel the Beeline Hwy multiple times a year in my automobile. I drive the speed limit and obey all traffic laws. I am courteous and friendly, sometimes waving, always smiling to other motorists in their automobiles. I digress on my driving habits for a hope it will raise your confidence in me and maybe gain some respect. Anyways, I see the memorial every time I'm driving by.

ObeyLaws

lemme - Your "academy time??" Assuming you graduated, it's clear from your endless sketchy comments on these pages the LE agencies made the right choice to wash you out or reject your app in the first place. Thank god for psych screening.

trsalemme

Why would you assume i didnt graduate.? nevermind. You must be right. My comments seem sketchy to someone who is ignorant to the issue being discussed. But its obvious yall need some kind of reckoning..so ill stop defending myself. Believe what ever it is you need to believe. :*
