A person was killed Monday when their minivan crashed into a tractor trailer on Interstate 10 southeast of Tucson.

The crash occurred just before 8 a.m. on westbound I-10 near milepost 303, just west of Benson, said Robert Bailey, an Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman.

The driver of the minivan - which became stuck underneath the tractor trailer after the crash - was pronounced dead at the scene, Bailey said.

Westbound I-10 was closed for nearly two hours as a result of the wreck, but reopened just before 10 a.m.
