Towed Truck Separates and Crashes into Another Vehicle Causing Minor Injuries

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.
