Police after truck driver in fatal freeway crash

By Greg Gurule. CREATED Jan 21, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Police are still looking for the driver of a flatbed truck that dropped several gas canisters on Interstate-17 in Phoenix yesterday triggering a fatal multi-vehicle crash.  A motorcycle driver was killed when he had to swerve to avoid the canisters and pulled in front of a tractor-trailer rig.  The semi-truck hit a canister and caught fire, then ran into a minivan with two adults and four children inside.

The driver of the flatbed truck disappeared before police and other first responders could arrive.
