PHOENIX (AP) - One person is dead and five others injured after an accident on Interstate 10 near downtown Phoenix.
Phoenix Fire Department officials say the crash occurred late Tuesday afternoon.
Details weren't immediately available and authorities didn't release the name of the person killed.
Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say the eastbound lanes of I-10 have reopened at 7th Street.
But the HOV and left lanes on I-10 westbound at 16th Street are blocked during rush hour as crews continue cleanup and the investigation of the fatal crash.
