A serious crash in Glendale closed the U.S. 60 in both directions for several hours late Thursday night into Friday morning.
The U.S. 60 was closed in both directions for a crash at 57th Drive and 53rd Avenue, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. It was reopened around 6 a.m.
Two vehicles were racing northbound on the U.S. 60 near 51st Avenue around 10:15 p.m., Glendale police spokeswoman Tiffany Smith said.
The driver of one of the two vehicles somehow lost control and ran off the roadway into multiple parked cars.
He was transported to a local hospital in critical condition but he is currently stable, Smith said.
The driver's female passenger was also transported for a precautionary injury.
Traffic was being diverted off of 57th Drive and 53rd Avenue on the U.S. 60.
