GOODYEAR, AZ — One person is hurt after a crash early Sunday morning on Interstate 10 in Goodyear.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says two vehicles were involved in a "serious injury" crash on I-10 westbound just past Dysart Road.

DPS says a man driving a black pickup truck lost control of his truck and traveled across multiple lanes before stopping within two lanes.

A witness stopped to help push the pickup truck out of the roadway when a gray car crashed into the rear corner of the truck.

Officials say that's when the driver of the pickup truck was ejected from the truck.

The truck then crashed into the median and caught on fire.

Westbound lanes of the interstate were closed at Dysart as DPS investigated. The highway has since reopened.

DPS says the driver of the gray car ran away from the scene.

On Wednesday, DPS announced the driver, identified as 30-year-old Juan Caraveo, contacted the Goodyear Police Department and requested troopers meet with him to discuss the crash.

During an interview, DPS says Caraveo admitted he was driving the vehicle and ran away from the scene.

Caraveo was booked into the Maricopa County Jail in Phoenix for aggravated assault, criminal damage, and leaving the scene of an injury collision.

The driver of the pickup truck was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

DPS says criminal charges are pending for leaving the scene of an injury collision.

No other information has been released at this time.

The crash remains under investigation.
