Mesa, AZ (January 28, 2020) – At least one person was injured in a car accident on Tuesday after their vehicle was rear-ended on Loop 101.
According to officers from the Mesa Police Department, the accident occurred on L-101 southbound, also known as the Price Freeway, near Southern Avenue around 8:35 p.m. It appears that a silver sedan rear-ended an SUV, causing a chain-reaction crash. Phoenix paramedics were at the scene to transport victims to a local area hospital. The extent of the injuries the victims sustained is not known at this time.
Police are still investigating the incident and have not released any additional information.
Our thoughts are with victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Though the total number of injuries across the state is down from 2017, the number of fatalities from crashes is on the rise. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, nearly 55,000 injuries and more than 1,000 fatalities occurred as a result of auto accidents in Arizona in 2018 alone. Many of these accidents occur as a result of driver negligence, leaving victims and their families to pick up the pieces from a wreck that happened through no fault of their own.
These serious incidents often have tragic consequences for victims and their families, including long-term injuries and costs or even job loss. But victims and their families can contact a car accident lawyer in Phoenix for help, and in some cases, seek the fair compensation they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
