Mesa, AZ (July 19, 2019) – A multi-vehicle crash on Friday evening, July 19th, blocked the Broadway Road off-ramp from L-202 eastbound.
According to authorities, the injury accident occurred on L-202 eastbound, also known as the Red Mountain Freeway, around 7:30 p.m. Fire rescue and police units were on the scene to investigate and assist the victims of the crash. At least two vehicles appeared to be involved in the collision, which closed the Broadway Road off-ramp and halted traffic in that area.
Officials are investigating the cause of the crash at this time and have not released the victims’ information.
Nearly 55,000 injuries and more than 1,000 deaths occurred in 2018 alone from car accidents in Arizona. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the summer season brings more vehicles to the roads, meaning a greater chance of these dangerous incidents for vehicles, motorcyclists, and pedestrians.
Serious car wrecks can have dramatic effects on victims and their families, such as long-term injuries and exorbitant medical costs. But victims and their families can contact a Phoenix auto accident lawyer for assistance, and in some instances, seek their fair compensation and justice from a personal injury or death lawsuit.
