A fiery, five-vehicle crash shut down eastbound lanes of US-60 during the Friday morning rush hour, KGUN9 sister station KNXV reports.

The crash occurred after 5:30 a.m. near Alma School Road.

Video from the Arizona Department of Transportation shows a large dump truck and several other vehicles engulfed in flames, blocking nearly all eastbound lanes.

A cement wall dividing the eastbound and westbound lanes has serious damage as well, indicating a possible crossover collision.

According to Mesa Fire Department, crews are treating eleven patients, including the dump truck driver who is going to a trauma center.

Expect heavy delays in both directions.
