Tempe, AZ (December 1, 2020) – The northbound lanes of Loop 101 have reopened in Tempe after a serious crash occurred on Tuesday afternoon.
Per reports from the Tempe Police Department, the crash happened around 12:30 p.m. on northbound Loop 101, also known as the Pima Freeway, near Broadway Road. Northbound traffic was closed while officers with the TPD and officials with the Arizona Department of Public Safety investigated the multi-vehicle crash, but the road has since reopened.
Video from the Arizona Department of Transportation showed heavy smoke and flames coming from two vehicles at the scene, but details surrounding the cause of the crash are unclear at this time.

The accident investigation continues.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Multi-Car Crashes in Arizona

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, nearly 50,000 injuries occurred as a result of crashes statewide in 2018.
