Only two lanes are currently open to eastbound traffic while authorities work the crash scene.

Video from our newschopper showed multiple vehicles involved in the crash with at least one on its side. Crews were tending to a patient laying in the roadway.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the driver of the Jeep was ejected from the crash. The driver told troopers he swerved to avoid something in the road when his vehicle rolled over. He was taken to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Two children were also in the vehicle but suffered minor injuries. 

A secondary collision occurred because of the crash but no one was injured.

There is no estimated time for all of the lanes to be reopened. Westbound lanes were unaffected. Check traffic conditions here.

No further details were released.

So many low-skilled and pathetic drivers here. Raise the skill and knowledge standard to get and keep a driver's licence in Arizona.
