Golden Valley, AZ (August 25, 2019) – An injury wreck closed the right lane of State Route 68 near South Egar Road on Sunday afternoon, August 25.
Authorities say that the injury accident occurred when at least two vehicles collided in the right lanes of SR 68 eastbound near South Egar Road around 4:15 p.m. Police and fire rescue units responded to the scene to assist injured victims but have not determined the cause of the crash at this time.

All lanes reopened by 5:00 p.m.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Nearly 55,000 total crashes occurred across the state of Arizona in 2018, with more than half involving multiple injured victims and more than two vehicles. Furthermore, recent crash data released by the Arizona Department of Transportation shows that these crashes caused nearly 35,000 accident injuries last year.
From exorbitant medical bills to critical long-term injuries and even job loss, tragic results may plague victims and families after a serious accident. However, those affected can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek the justice they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
