TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The monsoon storm flooded roads around Tucson and made for some slick driving conditions. The D.P.S. reported multiple accidents in the metro area.

One minute it was lightning and thunder and then a monsoon storm came crashing down.

Its dark gray clouds billowed and drifted across Southern Arizona creating a mess along Interstate 10.

"We're having multiple collisions due to the rain. It's coming in so fast," said DPS Officer Lawrence Peacock.

D.P.S. responded to a crash at I-10 and Cortaro. One car hydroplaned slamming into another car. No one was injured.

Just down the highway, three bikers had to pull off the interstate.

"You couldn't see. We were only traveling 15-20 mph on the freeway," said Richard Morales, who was traveling through the area.

As quickly as the storm came, a few hours later it was gone. The sun was out, giving drivers some relief on the roads.
