It has shut down parts of both roads during the morning commute, including Roy Rogers Rd. between Southwest Beef Bend Rd. and Scholls Sherwood Rd.

A vehicle traveling south on Roy Rogers Rd. crossed the center line and hit a dump truck traveling in the northbound lane, said Ray.

Both drivers were male, he said.

A Life Flight helicopter was put on standby, but did not respond to the scene, firefighters confirmed.

It’s not known if weather or reduced visibility played a role in the crash but firefighters said it was raining when the crash occurred.

The intersection where the crash occurred has been shut down, and it will reopen at 10:30 a.m., said Ray.

More information will be posted when it becomes available.
