A multi-vehicle car crash claims one life along State Route 51 in Phoenix.  Spokesman Bart Graves with the Department of Public Safety says a disabled car in the middle of the freeway set off a deadly chain reaction when an F-150 truck crashed into a car changing lines.  When the small car attempted to switch lanes

from the lane with the broken-down car, the driver of an F-150 truck plowed into the car killing the driver.  This crash set off a chain reaction that smashed up eight cars.  Except for the one fatality, no on suffered serious injuries in the eight-car pile-up.  Everyone was properly restrained, including the victim.  DPS is investigating the crash and charges or a citation is pending for the driver of the F-150 truck.
