PHOENIX – Traffic heading into metro Phoenix from the south was halted for several hours Monday after a crash on Interstate 10.

Westbound I-10 was closed at Riggs Road near Chandler around 10:15 a.m., according to the Arizona Department of Transportation, and reopened around 1 p.m.

Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves told KTAR News 92.3 FM that a commercial truck rolled over. The driver suffered injuries that don’t appear to be life threatening, he said.

Graves said no other vehicles were involved, but a separate crash, without injuries, occurred in the backup.

Motorists planning to go through Phoenix on their way to California were advised to instead take Interstate 8.

Eastbound traffic was not affected.
