Officials say more than a half-dozen people required treatment after a crash Saturday afternoon on the US 60.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said troopers responded around 8 p.m. to a rollover crash near US 60 and Alma School Road.

The crash blocked four lanes of eastbound traffic on the highway, and images from Arizona Department of Transportation cameras showed traffic quickly backed up behind the crash scene.

The Mesa Fire Department said first responders treated seven patients as a result of the crash. Two suffered injuries serious enough to be taken to nearby hospitals as trauma patients.

All eastbound lanes reopened just before 9 p.m., though ADOT said it would take some time for the traffic to clear.
