Crash shuts down I-17 near Sedona

SEDONA (AP) - A section of Interstate 17 in northern Arizona south of Sedona was closed for hours after a tractor-trailer crashed through a guardrail.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say the driver was able to get out of the big rig and escape injury in the accident about 3 p.m. Friday.

However, the front part of the cab on the big rig was hanging over a canyon. It took about three hours to clear the scene and the southbound lanes reopened by 6 p.m.

The crash scene was just north of State Route 179.

DPS officials say the cause of the accident isn't immediately clear.
