PHOENIX — A fatal collision closed part of a major Phoenix traffic artery during the Friday morning commute.

Eastbound lanes of Grand Avenue between 35th and 43rd avenues have reopened but westbound lanes remained closed.

Police say a car rear-ended a pickup traveling northwesterly on Grand Avenue with enough force that the truck careened into a power pole, knocking out electricity service to the area.

The pickup's driver is dead.

Police Sgt. Vince Lewis says speed was a factor in the crash. He says investigators are checking whether there was driver impairment.

The accident occurred shortly before 2 a.m.
