SUN CITY WEST, AZ (CBS5) -

A woman who drove through a stop sign and into a tractor-trailer on the Loop 303 freeway was in serious condition early Wednesday morning at a Valley hospital, according to a Department of Public Safety officer.

The woman's injuries were not considered life-threatening, the officer said.

The crash just after 3 a.m. in Sun City West closed one lane of the freeway at El Mirage Road for a short time, but traffic was flowing smoothly just after 4 a.m.

The impact of the crash broke an axle on the truck and it was waiting to be towed for repairs.

The DPS officer said tests were being given to determine whether the woman was driving while impaired.
