Phoenix, June 11 (SocialNews.XYZ) Four people were killed and multiple others injured in a road accident in the US state of Arizona involving a commercial truck transporting milk and seven other vehicles, authorities said.

The incident took place on a freeway in Phoenix at 10.09 p.m. on Wednesday night, Xinhua news agency quoted the Arizona Department of Public Safety as saying on Thursday.

 

The commercial truck-tractor pulling a tanker trailer filled with milk failed to slow for traffic congestion in the area of 52nd and Van Buren Streets and collided with the other seven vehicles, the Department said.
