Glendale, AZ (October 30, 2019) – Two people were transported to a local area hospital after a motorcycle wreck on Tuesday.
According to authorities, the accident happened in the area of 67th Avenue and Glendale Avenue around 7:00 p.m. Officers from the Glendale Police Department say that the two injured victims were on a motorcycle. The motorcyclist and his passenger were traveling through the Glendale and 67th intersection when a van turned in front of them.
Neither the motorcyclist nor their passenger were wearing a helmet, a Glendale detective said. Glendale paramedics arrived on the scene to transport the two to an area hospital, where they remain in critical condition.
At this point, it’s not clear if impairment was a factor in this accident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
In the last several years, motorcycle crashes have accounted for nearly 14 percent of all traffic fatalities nationwide. In fact, motorcycle wrecks have more than doubled since the 1990s, per data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Oftentimes, the nature of motorcycle accidents means tragic, unforeseen consequences for victims. From long-term physical problems and medical bills to job loss or even death, victims are left to pick up the pieces after a motorcycle accident.
But the victims and their families affected by these injurious motorcycle wrecks can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help. In some cases, a skilled lawyer can help victims get justice and a fair settlement to compensate for their damages from a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death lawsuit.
