A pileup crash involving two dozen vehicles caused many injuries and clogged a busy highway in Arizona last night after a truck that was hauling cattle failed to stop and plowed into traffic.

Fortunately, no one was killed in this incident, which occurred on Interstate 17 in Black Canyon City. However, 17 people were taken to hospitals for injuries, including four who had to be airlifted from the scene with moderate to severe injuries, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS).

DPS troopers said they were still investigating why the cattle hauler was unable to stop. You can visit CBS news for up-to-date information regarding the crash.
