Phoenix, AZ (September 15, 2019) – Officials from the Phoenix Police Department responded to a two-car accident which resulted in at least one injury on Interstate 10 on Sunday afternoon.
Phoenix police were joined at the scene by Phoenix fire rescue units around 4:30 p.m. According to a spokesman from the Phoenix Fire Department, at least two vehicles collided in the right lanes of I-10 westbound at 7th Avenue. The crash occurred at the end of the Deck Park Tunnel and involved one black Ford pickup truck and a red Honda sedan. It appears that the red sedan rear-ended the black pickup truck.

There are numerous vehicle wrecks every day on Arizona highways, ranging from minor fender benders to severe injurious accidents.
