Man: DPS killed on I-10 after fall from pickup bed

PICACHO PEAK, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a 32-year-old man was killed when he fell from a pickup truck bed and was struck by several vehicles on Interstate 10 in southern Arizona.

Westbound lanes of I-10 were closed near Picacho Peak for about seven hours after the Wednesday night accident. The lanes were reopened Thursday morning.
