Parker, AZ (September 2, 2019) – A multi-vehicle crash has closed both directions of State Route 95 near the intersection of Riverside Drive and California Avenue on Monday afternoon.
Authorities at the scene say that the crash involved multiple vehicles that collided in the right lanes of SR 95 at milepost 144, near the intersection of Riverside and California, around 2:30 p.m. The crash closed the freeway in both directions. Fire rescue units and police were assisting the injured victims and investigating the cause of the wreck, though they have not released the drivers’ information.
The road reopened around 3:30 p.m.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
In Arizona, more than half of the total car wrecks that occurred last year involved at least two drivers. In fact, according to a recent report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, more than 55,000 car accidents total occurred across the state last year, meaning that more than 25,000 involved multiple vehicles.
Serious accidents can have tragic effects on victims and their families, especially accidents that occur as a result of other drivers’ negligent actions. Exorbitant medical costs, critical long-term injuries, and job stresses are just a few of the devastating, unforeseen circumstances that can plague victims and their families after a wreck. But those affected can contact a Phoenix personal injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, victims may seek the fair compensation they deserve from wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit.
