TONOPAH, Ariz. — The Latest on a wreck on eastbound Interstate 10 west of Phoenix (all times local):

10 a.m.

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.

Eastbound Interstate 10 is closed in western Maricopa County because of a wreck, and the state Department of Public Safety says the closure will last a while because crews need to upright an overturned tractor-trailer rig loaded with food products.

Trooper Kameron Lee says a heavy duty tow truck was dispatched to help remove the big rig that overturned Wednesday morning near Tonopah, injuring the driver.

The state Department of Transportation says eastbound traffic on I-10 is being diverted onto 411th Avenue to Salome Highway and then east to Wintersburg Road and north to I-10.

ADOT says drivers may consider delaying travel or using an alternate route during the closure.

Lee says the driver’s injures don’t appear life-threatening.

Tonopah is about 52 miles (84 kilometers) west of Phoenix.
