Mayer, AZ (August 18, 2019) – A multi-vehicle accident blocked several lanes and delayed traffic on Interstate 17 near Dugas Road in Mayer on Sunday afternoon, August 18th.
Authorities say that at least two vehicles collided in the center lanes of I-17 southbound, near Dugas Road and Bloody Basin, around 4:00 p.m. Police and fire rescue units responded to the scene of the crash and assisted injured victims.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
A recent crash report from the Arizona Department of Transportation showed that nearly 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018. And according to last year’s data, more than half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes included two or more vehicles and multiple injuries.
When it comes to these serious crashes, victims and their families often deal with costly medical expenses, critical long-term injuries, and even job loss or death. But those affected by these unfortunate incidents can contact a Phoenix car accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
