Parker, AZ (July 28, 2019) – A serious multi-vehicle accident on Sunday afternoon, July 28th, blocked all northbound lanes on State Route 95 at Hopi Avenue.
Authorities responded to the crash scene at Hopi Avenue and SR 95, also known as West Riverside Drive, around 2:10 p.m. The multi-vehicle accident occurred in the northbound lanes near California Avenue in Parker and appeared to involve at least two vehicles. Police and fire rescue officials were at the scene of the injury wreck to assist the victims and determine the cause of the collision.
All lanes reopened just before 3:00 p.m., but the drivers’ information and their current conditions have not yet been released.
Nearly 55,000 accidents and more than 35,000 injuries occurred in 2018 across the state of Arizona, part of a steady year-over-year increase in serious wrecks since 2016, with a peak in serious injuries in 2017. More than half of those crashes were rear-end accidents and included one or more injuries. And data from the Arizona Department of Transportation shows that the summer months bring even more traffic to highways, resulting in a higher risk of critical accidents.
Exorbitant medical bills, serious long-term injuries, and even job loss are some of the tragic, unforeseen consequences that may plague victims and their families after a wreck. But those affected by these collisions can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek the fair compensation they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
