One Man Injured in Two-Vehicle Crash on Interstate 19
TUCSON, AZ (August 3, 2022) – Early Wednesday, one man was injured in a semi-truck collision on Interstate 19.
The incident happened on July 13th, at around 3:39 am, near Sahuarita Road.
According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, a crash involving a semi-truck and another vehicle resulted in a driver being trapped in the cab of the big-rig.
Emergency crews arrived at the site of the wreck and extricated the man from the vehicle. He was then flown to a local hospital in Tucson for treatment of his injuries.
