TUCSON, Ariz. - Tucson police shut down westbound Ajo Way Thursday morning after a truck wreck.

According to Sgt. Pete Dugan, a box truck heading eastbound on Interstate 10 went off the overpass when the driver lost control.

When crews tried to set the truck upright, its cargo spilled out, causing the road to be closed. Eastbound lanes weren't affected.

No one was injured in the wreck. The closure lifted in the 9 a.m. hour.
