PHOENIX - Phoenix police say a man is dead after he lost control of his truck early Saturday morning near Sky Harbor International Airport.
According to Sgt. Tommy Thompson, the collision happened around 2:45 a.m. on westbound Sky Harbor Boulevard near 44th Street.
Ricardo Dessens, 42, was driving a 2007 Isuzu flatbed truck at the time with no cargo on board, Thompson said. The truck belonged to the barricade company he worked for.
Dessens lost control of the truck and hit a raised structural portion of the road, Thompson said.
Eastern routes to the airport were shut down for several hours from the Loop 202 to State Route 143 due to the investigation, he said.
Sky Harbor Airport operations were not affected.
