Avondale, AZ (August 2, 2019) – An injury accident on Friday evening, August 2nd, blocked the left two lanes of traffic at the Avondale off-ramp on I-10.
Officials on the scene say that at least two vehicles collided in the eastbound lanes of I-10, also known as the Papago Freeway, around 8:46 p.m. Police and fire rescue units were on the scene of the multi-vehicle wreck, which closed the left lanes of traffic for an hour. First responders assisted injured victims and are working to determine the cause of the crash. However, the drivers’ information, as well as their current conditions, have not been released at this time.
Per a recent report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, nearly 55,000 accidents and more than 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018. Serious accidents are on the rise, especially multi-vehicle injury crashes, with more than half of the total yearly crashes involving multiple injuries and several vehicles.
Long-term medical expenses, critical injuries and even job loss or death can occur after a wreck. But victims and their families can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help after a serious accident, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
