The Maricopa Fire/Medical Department responded Tuesday to an accident involving two vehicles on John Wayne Parkway.

The incident occurred in an intersection near The Shops at Maricopa Fiesta. Emergency crews were still assisting a passenger in a silver-colored sedan at 3:15 p.m.

A digital community alert sent by the Maricopa Police Department warned afternoon motorists to expect delays. Injuries are reported.

This is a developing story.

Photos of the same intersection in Maricopa nearly 20 years apart show the changes that have occurred since 1998. The 1998 photo, part of an aerial series, shows buildings that no longer exist at the intersection. In the 2017 photo by Jack Jackson, the pecan groves have turned into residential and commercial space. The area is now undergoing preparations for the construction of an overpass and will again appear dramatically different in a short amount of time.
