3 non-injury crashes on I-10 north of Picacho Peak; blowing dust in area

Blowing dust along Interstate 10 north of Picacho Peak Tuesday afternoon has resulted in three non-injury crashes.

A blowing dust advisory between Tucson to Phoenix is expected through this evening, according to the National Weather Service. 

Arizona Department of Public Safety highway patrol officers were slowing traffic in the Picacho Peak area because of the blowing dust, said Raul Garcia, a DPS spokesman.

“There is zero visibility in certain areas and our officers are monitoring that corridor,” Garcia said.

The crashes occurred between mileposts 212 and 214.

No further information was immediately available.
