Multiple Accidents on I-17 Southbound
MUNDS PARK (NAZ Today)– A series of accidents is causing traffic to back up in the southbound lanes of I-17 near Munds Park.
NAZ Today’s Matt Tantau is reporting that at least three separate accidents, with one involving a semi, have brought traffic to a stop in some places and a line of cars about a mile long in the southbound lanes coming from Flagstaff.
These accidents are the latest in a string of crashes during the most recent winter storm, which has dropped several inches of snow around Flagstaff since Saturday night.
Late Saturday night, three separate roll-over accidents occured between Kachina Village and Munds Park on I-17 within an hour of each other. APSN’s Chad Black says that at least seven vehicles were involved, and six people were injured with one person sustaining life-threatening injuries.
Meteorologist Matt Tantau is forecasting an additional 2-4 inches of snow for the area this evening through early Monday morning.
