Two separate crashes on the I-10 and US-60 caused delays in Tempe late Friday morning.

Check current traffic conditions.

The first crash occurred before 11 a.m. on westbound I-10 near 40th Street. Fire officials say there were two patients in the multi-car crash, including a pregnant woman.

Luckily, no serious injuries were suffered, but she was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

Traffic was backed up behind the crash to Elliot Rd and also caused slowing on the US-60 interchange. 

Just before noon, crews were dispatched to the second serious crash located on the US-60 near Priest.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says the US 60 ramp to I-10 eastbound toward Tucson is closed.

DPS says two people were taken to the hospital.
