Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation released its 2018 report, which showed that nearly 35,000 injuries resulted from car crashes across the state in the last year alone. And of the nearly 55,000 total accidents that occurred, more than half of those involved at least two vehicles and more than one injured victim.
