Littlefield, AZ (July 16, 2019) – Police claim that on Friday around midnight, three people were injured in a DUI accident that took place on Interstate 15 in Littlefield, Arizona.
Police were called to the scene of the accident involving three separate vehicles to find that a silver Chevrolet, purple Jeep, and a semi-trailer collided with one another. The accident left debris all over the one entire side of the interstate.
The semi-truck was overturned down a small embankment off the side of the road and emergency responders were called in to put out a few fires.
At the time of the crash, police confirmed that the Chevy had been headed north when it suddenly rear-ended the Jeep. This caused the Chevy to cross the median into the other lane of traffic where it collided with the semi-truck. The vehicle was badly damaged and caught on fire but the driver was able to quickly get out to safety.
Police claim that, when they met with the driver of the Chevy, he was giving off signals that he had been extremely impaired when they spoke with him.
All three drivers were injured in the accident but expected to be okay.
The investigation into the circumstances of the crash is still ongoing at this time.
Our sincerest thoughts and prayers are warmly extended to those involved in this crash.
