Tempe, AZ (February 14, 2021) – A multi-car accident blocked the left lanes of Interstate 10 near the State Route 143 ramp and resulted in at least one injury on Sunday morning.

According to authorities on the scene, the crash occurred when at least two vehicles collided in the left lanes of I-10 eastbound, also known as the Maricopa Freeway, at the SR 143 exit around 11:30 a.m. First responders arrived at the scene of the wreck to assist injured victims and clear the debris, though they’re still working to determine the cause of the wreck.

News footage from the scene showed two sedans appeared to be involved in the rear-end crash, and both vehicles had sustained front-end and back-end damage. EMTs were also at the scene to treat victims, but they haven’t released details on the victims’ injuries.

The accident remains under investigation at this time.
