MESA, Arizona — Authorities say one person is dead after a fiery crash involving a big rig on a Mesa freeway.

Arizona Department of Transportation officials say the crash occurred at the Dobson Road exit ramp at about 1 p.m. Thursday.

Authorities say the cab of the big rig caught fire after the crash, which also involved another vehicle.

It isn’t immediately clear if the person who died was in the big rig or car and authorities didn’t immediately release the victim’s identity.

ADOT officials say the westbound lanes of U.S. 60 at the Loop 101 Price Freeway were re-opened around 7 p.m.
