"We're doing everything that we can," said Garcia. "I can tell you from looking at some of these reports that ADOT was contacted immediately. DPS dispatchers obviously calling our officers to get out to the scene and everyone was in response. My understanding is that local law enforcement was also trying to get an aircraft up to help with this but between 2:02 in the morning and 2:08, that 7 mile stretch, we weren't able to get officers to the scene or that assistance to try and stop this collision from happening."
