A tow truck driver cleans up debris before moving a vehicle that went off of the I-10 overpass onto Ajo Way Thursday morning, Aug. 29, 2019. The accident shut down eastbound traffic for part of the morning.

One person was taken to a hospital after a crash near Interstate 10 and East Ajo Way, officials say. 

The crash happened on eastbound I-10 shortly before 10 a.m. Thursday and involved an SUV and a semi, according to Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves. 

After the two vehicles crashed, the SUV rolled off I-10 onto Ajo Way, Graves said.

The driver of the SUV was taken to the hospital. The extent of injuries is unknown and no other injuries have been reported.
