Black Canyon City, AZ (July 28, 2019) – An injury accident on Sunday evening, July 28th, blocked the left lane of I-17 southbound at milepost 243.
Authorities responded to the crash scene around 8:17 p.m. and say that at least two cars appeared to be involved in the wreck. The multi-vehicle crash occurred in the southbound lanes on I-17, also known as the Black Canyon Freeway, near Rock Springs Cafe in Black Canyon City. Police and fire rescue officials were at the scene of the wreck to assist injured victims and determine the cause of the crash.
All lanes reopened just before 9:00 p.m., though the drivers’ information and their current conditions have not yet been released.
Across the State of Arizona, nearly 55,000 accidents and over 35,000 injuries occurred in 2018 alone, part of a continuous year-over-year rise in serious wrecks since 2016. More than half of those accidents were rear-end collisions and included one or more injuries. And information from the Arizona Department of Transportation indicates that the summer months bring more traffic to the state roads, leading to an increase in serious wrecks.
Costly medical expenses, serious long-term injuries, and even job loss are some of the tragic consequences that may befall victims and their families after a car accident. But those affected by these critical collisions can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek the justice and fair compensation they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
