Mesa, AZ (July 28, 2019) – A multi-vehicle accident on Sunday, July 28th, blocked the right lanes of I-10 eastbound near 16th Street.
According to authorities on the scene, at least two vehicles appeared to be involved in the collision, which occurred when they collided in the right lanes while traveling eastbound on I-10, also known as the Papago Freeway, near 16th Street. Police and fire rescue units responded to the wreck around 4:28 p.m. to assist injured victims and investigate the cause of the incident.

Nearly 55,000 crashes and more than 35,000 crash injuries occurred in Arizona in 2018, part of a steady year-over-year increase in severe wrecks since 2016. And Arizona Department of Transportation data shows that the summer months bring more traffic to state highways, leading to an increased danger of these serious incidents.
