This is a tanker dairy truck that rear ended another tanker truck carrying a diesel gas byproduct. This collision occurred westbound I-10 at Chandler Blvd. Both eastbound and westbound I-10 are closed. We have one fatality which will be the driver of the milk truck. We believe this closure to last for several hours.
