At least one person was injured in a collision Thursday at the intersection of Porter Road and Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway.

A PT Cruiser and a pickup truck were involved in the incident, which caused temporary lane closures. A woman was described as having lacerations from broken glass.

No serious injuries were reported in a five-vehicle collision on northbound State Route 347.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Quentin Mehr said five people reported very minor injuries and no one was transported to a hospital. Vehicles, however, were transported from the scene.

The incident occurred at 10:28 a.m. at milepost 185 where blowing dust obscured visibility. Traffic was slowed as state troopers and other law enforcement responded to the scene, but the road was not closed.

Blowing dust continues to be an issue between the gravel pit road and Riggs Road, and motorists are urged to drive with caution.

A multi-vehicle accident on State Route 347 north of the gravel pit stopped northbound traffic this morning.

According to the Department of Public Safety, five vehicles were involved. The incident occurred at milepost 185 at around 10:28 a.m.

“Troopers and emergency personnel are on scene working to clear the road,” said DPS spokesman Quentin Mehr. “At this time, I do not have information on the number of injuries or severity.”

Blowing dust has been affecting the flow of traffic all morning on SR 347, and dust has been particularly heavy in that area.

An collision snarled traffic at a busy intersection Thursday afternoon as schools were dismissing classes.

Maricopa Police Department reported no serious injuries, though two juveniles in one of the vehicles complained of stomach pain and were treated on scene at Honeycutt and Porter roads.

According to MPD spokesman Ricardo Alvarado, a southbound van on Porter collided with a northbound Jeep trying to turn left onto Honeycutt Road. The juveniles were passengers in the Jeep. The investigation became a matter of what color the north-south traffic lights were.

“The driver of the Jeep stated the light was red,” Alvarado said. “The driver of the van said the light was yellow. An independent witness at the scene said the light was green.”

Police sided with the independent witness and cited the Jeep driver for causing an accident.

Neither vehicle sustained serious damage and both were able to be driven from the scene.

A Maricopa man died Sunday night in a wrong-way collision on State Route 347 south of Interstate 10. The crash closed the road for eight hours.

Christopher A. Canavett, 20, of Maricopa was the only fatality in the incident, which involved four vehicles.

According to Department of Public Safety spokesman Raul Garcia, Canavett was driving south on SR 347 when he crossed over into northbound traffic. He side-swiped one vehicle and collided head-on with another. The fourth vehicle rear-ended that vehicle as well, according to the report.

Canavett died at the scene.

“One subject was admitted for observation at Chandler Regional,” Garcia said. “Three other vehicles struck debris from the four-vehicle crash.”

The person who was taken to the hospital was the driver of the third vehicle that was hit twice.

The collision occurred around 8:16 p.m. The road was re-opened at 4:13 a.m.

The crash remains under investigation.
