Black Canyon City, AZ (August 30, 2019) – A multi-vehicle accident blocked the left lane of Interstate 17 past New River on Friday morning.
According to authorities, the crash occurred when two vehicles collided in the left lanes of I-17 northbound at milepost 247 around 9:30 a.m. Police and fire rescue units responded to the crash and were assisting injured victims. Officials were also at the scene to determine the cause of the multi-vehicle wreck.
The extent of the victims’ injuries are not known at this time.
All lanes reopened by 11:00 a.m., though traffic remained slow in the area.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, almost 55,000 wrecks occurred across the state last year. And of the total accidents that occurred in Arizona, more than half involved at least two cars and more than two injured victims.
Costly medical bills, critical injuries, and even job loss are just a few of the tragic consequences that may plague victims and their families following a wreck. But those affected by these accidents can contact a Phoenix injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation and the justice they deserve from a personal injury lawsuit.
