At approximately 10:45 a.m. on U.S. 93 at milepost 168, approximately 28 miles northwest of Wickenburg, a collision occurred. 

The Arizona Department of Public Safety reported that a Circle K semi-truck driver, traveling south, veered across the center lane, resulting in a sideswipe collision with another semi-truck's trailer. 

The impact caused the Circle K truck to overturn into a ditch, leading to the fatality of the driver. Aerial footage revealed the overturned Circle K-branded tanker truck.

Fortunately, the other driver involved in the collision emerged unharmed, and three additional vehicles were struck during the incident, with no reported injuries. While the identities remain undisclosed, no names have been released.

Following the collision, ADOT implemented a temporary traffic shutdown in both directions. The southbound lanes of U.S. 93 were blocked at Interstate 40 for approximately three hours but were reopened around 4:15 p.m.

The northbound lanes, initially closed at State Route 71, resumed operation shortly before 5 p.m.
