PHOENIX, AZ (January 13, 2023) – At least fives lives were lost during a fiery collision near Chandler Boulevard and Interstate 10 around 6:00 a.m. this morning. Two semi-trucks and multiple passenger vehicles were involved. One passenger vehicle and one semi-truck were completely destroyed by flames.
DPS troopers did confirm that a semi-truck traveling eastbound at full speed on I-10 slammed into the back of two passenger vehicles. That catastrophic impact started a chain reaction of events when the smaller passenger vehicles were forced into the back of another semi. The second involved semi then collided with the back of the passenger vehicle in front of it, which then slammed into the back of another passenger car.
