Big rig overturns on Interstate 10 west of Phoenix

TONOPAH, AZ - Authorities have begun reopening eastbound I-10 where it was closed at Tonopah in western Maricopa County after a tractor-trailer rig loaded with food products overturned, injuring the driver.

 The Arizona Department of Transportation says one of two eastbound lanes was reopened around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday and said there's no immediate estimate on when the other lane will reopen.

 A heavy duty tow truck went to the site and was used to pull the overturned big rig toward the side of the highway.
