Phoenix, AZ (May 10, 2022) – The director of the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Mr. Heston Silbert, was hospitalized after a two-car accident on Valley Freeway left him injured on Monday, May 9th.
According to an internal email, Silbert was transported to a regional hospital with injuries that are believed to be non-critical.
The driver of the other vehicle was transported in serious condition.
The accident took place at about 6:00 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 in the area of State Route 143.
In order to avoid colliding with gridlocked traffic, the driver of the other vehicle swerved, causing him to lose control of his pick-up truck and crash into Silbert’s vehicle.
Silbert accredits his comparatively minor injuries to the fact that he was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the incident, a detail the driver of the other vehicle seemingly overlooked.
An investigation has ruled out driver impairment as a factor in the collision.
No further information has been made available.
