A near head-on collision on Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway Thursday resulted in a flipped vehicle and a trapped driver but no life-threatening injuries, according to Maricopa Police Department.
The incident happened after 6 p.m. east of the intersection with White and Parker Road.
MPD spokesman Ricardo Alvarado said a westbound vehicle crossed over the center line and hit an eastbound vehicle.
“The westbound vehicle from the impact lost control and flipped over,” Alvarado said. “The driver of the westbound car was trapped.”
That driver was extricated by Maricopa Fire/Medical Department. While that work was going on, MPD shut down traffic between White and Parker Road and Murphy Road. The roadway was reopened around 8 p.m.
“The driver of the westbound vehicle was cited for failure to maintain one lane and transported to Chandler with non-life-threatening injuries,” Alvarado said. “The driver of the eastbound car was not injured.”
