Glendale, AZ (August 14, 2019) – An injury accident blocked the right lane of traffic on I-17 southbound before Glendale Avenue on Wednesday afternoon, August 14th.
According to officials at the scene, the crash occurred when two vehicles, both sedans, collided on I-17 southbound, also known as the Black Canyon Freeway, at Glendale Avenue around 5:56 p.m. Fire rescue units and local police were assisting injured victims and determining the cause of the wreck, though the drivers’ information and the extent of their injuries are not known at this time.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Accident data from the Arizona Department of Transportation reported nearly 35,000 injuries resulting from car crashes across the state in 2018. And of the nearly 55,000 total accidents that occurred last year, more than half involved two or more injured victims.
From serious injuries to long-term medical costs and job loss or even death, injury accidents can have tragic results for victims and their families. However, those affected by injury wrecks can contact a Phoenix car accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek the justice they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
