PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - A 2-mile (3.2-kilometer) stretch of a freeway was closed in a Phoenix suburb during the Friday morning commute as police responded to an incident that involved a reported altercation and a car crash that sent at least one person to a hospital.

The northbound Loop 101 freeway was closed in Peoria between Peoria Avenue and Thunderbird Road.
