COCHISE COUNTY—A semi truck careened out of control when a tire blew.

It was a single-vehicle accident near milepost 350 on I-10, between Willcox and Safford. A semi truck’s driver tire blew, throwing it out of control and across the median toward oncoming traffic in the westbound lanes. Westbound traffic was running at a slow but steady stream on I-10 near the scene. The truck jackknifed but remained upright. According to a reporting Department of Public Safety trooper, there were no injuries.

One lane of westbound I-10 stayed open in the I-10, but traffic was moving slowly near the accident, from milepost 353 forward. A tow truck was sent from Benson, and the Arizona Department of Transportation unit also responded to complete a lane closure with signage.
