Dust storm blamed in fatal pile-up

CASA GRANDE, Ariz.(AP) Three people were killed and at least 12 injured after a dust storm led to multiple crashes Tuesday on Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Tucson, authorities said.

Arizona Department of Public Safety(DPS) officials identified one of those killed as George Lee Smith, 76, of Mead, Wash.

They said Smith's wife was injured, but her condition wasn't immediately disclosed.

DPS officials said 19 vehicles - 10 commercial vehicles, seven passenger cars, one tanker and one recreational vehicle - were involved in chain-reaction collisions south of Casa Grande shortly after noon.
