Last night a semi-truck tractor separated from the truck that was towing it and crashed into another vehicle, causing minor injuries.
An eastbound semi–truck was towing three other semi-truck tractors on Highway 60 when one of the trucks separated and crossed into oncoming westbound traffic. The driverless truck collided head on into a car driven by a couple from the Casa Grande area.
The driver of the first semi-truck was stopped in Globe by a DPS officer who noticed that the truck had no taillights. The rear lighting remained with the separated vehicle.
Neither of the drivers were injured. A passenger in the westbound vehicle was taken to Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.
The semi-truck was taken out of service for multiple equipment violations.
