Chandler, AZ (August 31, 2019) – A crash blocked the right lanes of Interstate 10 at Chandler Boulevard on Saturday afternoon.
Per officials at the scene, the wreck involved at least one pickup truck and one sedan, which collided in the right lanes of I-10 eastbound, also known as the Maricopa Freeway, at Chandler Boulevard around 2:30 p.m. Police and fire rescue units responded to assist injured victims, though authorities did not disclose the seriousness of the injuries.
An investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
More than half of Arizona car accidents that occurred statewide last year involved more than two cars and multiple injured victims. In fact, data from the Arizona Department of Transportation showed that the total car accidents in 2018 numbered more than 55,000, meaning more than 25,000 injuries occurred.
Serious accidents, especially those where another driver was at fault, can have devastating effects on victims and their families. From costly medical bills and long-term injuries to job stresses, tragic circumstances plague victims. However, those affected by these crashes can contact a Phoenix injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, victims may seek the fair compensation they deserve from wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit.
