valley freeways, really an unbelievable scene unfolding in the east valley, a dump truck crash involving several cars backs up traffic for several hours. >> amazingly, though, no one was seriously injured in what could have been a deadly accident. ron hoon joining us now live with what happened. >> it's called the superstition freeway. it's out there in the east valley. and if you were traveling on it this morning, you no doubt noticed traffic was a mess, and it all began when a dump truck going west crashed over the median. that's a concrete barrier and into the eastbound lanes of the freeway, right around alma school road. here's a look at how bad the crash was. you can see a tow truck and a few other cars or a dump truck and a few other cars were all smashed together after the crash, debris all over those eastbound lanes. traffic actually was narrowed to one lane, making the commute extra slow, and at one point they had to close all of the lanes. the freeway has since reopened.
story is just how burnt and charred the vehicles there. this is why. this is the video that is so stunning when we had it for you early on the morning show, about 5:45, and the dump truck crashed and crossed into the eastbound lanes, it collided and caught fire. can you imagine the shock of the drivers who were hit by it? the flames and this plume of smoke were steady for a good half hour. once they were put out, our fox 10 crews got to the scene to talk to some of the victims >> and all of a sudden i see a vehicle just sliding this way with sparks and everything and fire, and then stopped, maybe just inches away, from hitting the debris. a couple of seconds later, a car hit me from behind. but the flames started going up, so we had to back up our vehicle. seriously, i'm just amazed that nobody seriously got hurt. that was the biggest miracle of all. >> when you have a dump truck break through the median barrier and strike vehicles in the
speeds, to have nobody injured is absolutely incredible. >> incredible, amazing, or as you heard that one man say a miracle. such a positive outcome after such a huge mess, considering things could have been so much worse, and how often those concrete barriers have kept drivers from doing this very thing. by the way, as for the driver of the tow truck, d.p.s. is still investigating what caused him to crash in the first place. i'm ron hoon, fox 10 news. >> ron, thank you for that. a man behind bars accused of driving down a valley freeway drunk onhe road at very high speeds, his passenger apparently tried to cover this whole thing up for him after the chase was over. d.p.s. tells us the suspect drove nearly eight miles going 90 miles an hour the wrong way on the loop 202. so think of what could have happened there. luckily troopers were able to stop him before there was any accident or impact, and our fox 10 crews right there at the scene. they talked to the passenger in that car. the passenger, d.p.s. says, tried to switch seats with the driver to keep that driver from
>> i don't want to talk about it. all i know is i was sleeping the whole time, and, yeah, that's it. i don't even want to talk about it. >> that's fine. >> i apologize if anything might have happened, but i can't tell you anything because i don't know anything. >> well, the actual driver was eventually taken into custody. >> new developments now in the deadly shooting from earlier this month, two weeks after cortez was shot to death during a fight, police have now arrested a suspect. we have learned that the suspect police say he actually admitted to his role in the death of cortez while detectives were interviewing him. the teen is from mesa, and he's facing one account of second-degree murder. america's toughest sheriff isn't going down without a fight when it comes to that racial profiling case filed against him in his office. sheriff joe arpaio has filed a

election. the birther movement is the idea that president barack obama was not born in the united states. well, yesterday hillary clinton accused her republican rival of ugliness and bigotry for helping fuel this idea, but donald trump has now gone on the record saying the g.o.p. nominee now believes president obama was born in this country, for many years, though, trump was the most prominent supporter of the birther movement but has since brought the both candidates spot flying today. a marketing director made these gliders, so it's making a lot of people stop and stair. hillary clinton is on a broomstick and donald trump is dropping hundred in the air. those things can really fly though. look at that. the creator said he made them as a marketing tool for his company, not trying to make a political statement. >> you should see donald trump when he is dropping the cash.
it's good stuff. well, you can't get republicans and democrats to agree on much of anything in washington, unless they are talking about edward snowden. a congressional report slams the nsa leaker, a summary released by the house intelligence committee says snowden is not a whistle-blower. it says most of the documents he stole were military and defense secrets, having nothing to do with americans privacy. every member of the committee, republican and democrat, also wrote a letter to president obama urging snowden. snowden right now has a massive pr effort under way where people have been pushing to pardon him and it coincides with the snowden movie coming out today. new test results showing arizona students are doing better than they have been, 4% higher than the first year that they were tested.
