Mesa, AZ (August 16, 2019) – An injury accident blocked the right three lanes of US-60 past Val Vista Road on Friday morning, August 16th.
According to authorities on the scene, the crash occurred when two vehicles collided in the right lanes of US-60 westbound, also known as the Superstition Freeway, past Val Vista Road around 11:30 a.m. First responders responded to the wreck to assist injured victims and clear the wreckage, though they’re still working to determine the cause of the collision and have not released the drivers’ information.
All lanes reopened just before 1:00 p.m., though heavy traffic backups remained.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
The Arizona Department of Transportation published its most recent crash report, which showed almost 35,000 accident injuries statewide in 2018. And of last year’s nearly 55,000 total accidents, more than half involved more than one injured victim.
Serious injuries, astronomical medical costs, and even job loss may plague victims and their families after a wreck. But those affected can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
