Loop 2002 Crash

It took crews hours to remove the trucks and debris, including diesel fuel, from the roadway. (Jim Cross/KTAR) Two of the drivers were hospitalized with minor injuries. The third trucker has minor injuries and was not taken to the hospital. (Jim Cross/KTAR) A rock hauler hit the brakes to avoid the debris and jack-knifed, which started the chain reaction of events. (Jim Cross/KTAR) It all started before 5 a.m., when a truck lost a load of styrofoam material and kept going. (Jim Cross/KTAR) The eastbound Loop 202 at 44th Street was closed for more than three hours following a crash involving two 18-wheelers and a dump truck. (Jim Cross/KTAR)
