Mesa, AZ (August 5, 2019) – An SUV crashed into an apartment complex near Ray Road and Interstate 10, also called the Maricopa Freeway, late Monday night, August 5th.
According to authorities at the scene, a gray SUV slammed into the apartment near I-10, right outside of Chandler, and managed to do a lot of damage after going through a wall and into a room in the apartment. Officials responded to assess injuries, damage and investigate the cause of the crash. Police and fire rescue units were assisting injured victims. However, the information of the victims, as well as the driver and any passengers, has not yet been released. The extent of the crash injuries is also not known at this time.
A recent report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation shows that nearly 55,000 accidents and more than 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018 alone. These numbers are part of a steady year-over-year rise in crashes since 2015, with a peak in 2017. And more than half of these serious accidents involved more than one vehicle and multiple injuries or fatalities.
