TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Southern Arizona drivers going to Phoenix this afternoon will face delays on Interstate 10 until at least 1:30 p.m.

An accident west of Riggs Road has traffic restricted in both directions, with delays lasting more than 30 minutes.

Only one west-bound lane was open, the Arizona Department of Transportation said.

"ADOT advises drivers to plan for extended travel times or to consider delaying trips in the area until the crash has cleared. Also, drivers should consider alternate routes that include State Route 87," ADOT spokesman Garin Groff told Tucson News Now.

At least eight people were injured in the single-vehicle crash around 10:45 a.m. near the Gila River Indian Reservation.

A medical helicopter landed on the scene, stopping traffic briefly.

One person was transported, the Phoenix Fire Department said.

Seven others suffered injuries.
