The crumpled remains of an SUV in the westbound lanes following a collision on West Miracle Mile, just west of North Flowing Wells Road on June 14, 2018, in Tucson, Ariz. The SUV collided head-on with a flatbed truck.

A man was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries after a head-on collision on Tucson's north side Thursday afternoon. 

Tucson fire crews and police officers responded to the serious vehicle accident on Miracle Mile between Flowing Wells Road and Interstate 10 around 1 p.m.

Police say the man struck a median attempting to make a left turn from Miracle Mile onto Romero Road and ended up in the westbound lanes of upcoming traffic. 

A city of Tucson vehicle struck him head on. Police did not report injuries to the driver of the city-owned vehicle. 

It is unknown if any impairments were factors in the wreck.

The westbound lanes of Miracle Mile were closed for several hours due to an investigation and clean up, authorities said.
