Fatal Phoenix Car Accident

A fiery crash at the intersection of 59th Avenue and Thomas Road left one person dead and traffic snarled for more than ten hours early Thursday morning.  Accident investigators speculate that a tow truck heading north on 59th Avenue ran a red light, striking a Mitsubishi SUV and setting off a chain reaction involving 6 vehicles.  The Mitsubishi exploded and burst into flames.  Intense heat from the fire prevented witnesses from rendering aid to the driver.  The driver died at the scene.
