PHOENIX — The Department of Public Safety is investigating a crash involving multiple vehicles on Interstate 17.

Emergency crews with the Phoenix Fire Department were called to northbound I-17, north of Cactus for reports of a crash.

According to Phoenix Fire, an Arizona Department of Transportation street sweeper was involved along with several other vehicles.
