VIDEO: She's seen her fair share of wounds, but Saturday night Valley nurse Rachel Baldwin walked into a hospital to find her son bloodied and broken. "He had an epidural brain bleed and he also a subdural hematoma," said Baldwin. "He has a skull fracture in a few places and a few facial fractures.” Her son, 19-year-old Anthony Easterday, was on his way to his family's Apache Junction home from his job at a Jackson's Car Wash in Phoenix just before a chain reaction crash. "A vehicle was eastbound US-60 at milepost 178 in the left emergency lane attempting to pull a disabled vehicle off the highway with a tow strap," said Bart Graves with the Arizona Department of Safety. "The tow vehicle entered the HOV lane, was struck by another passing vehicle. The impact caused the tow vehicle to be pushed into the middle lanes of traffic." That impact led to at least two other crashes, that killed the tow driver after DPS says he got out of his truck.
