Phoenix, AZ (December 19, 2019) – Four people, including two children, were hospitalized after a multi-vehicle crash in central Phoenix on Thursday evening.
According to officers with the Phoenix Police Department, the accident happened at 27th Avenue and State Avenue, just north of Glendale Avenue. Firefighters say that a 16-year-old boy and a 28-year-old man are in critical condition as a result of the crash. An 8-year-old girl and a 22-year-old man are in stable condition at the hospital. Police say that the victims’ injuries aren’t considered life-threatening.
It’s unclear what led to the two-vehicle crash but Phoenix police are investigating.
Our thoughts are with all injured victims in hopes of a quick recovery.
Data released by the Arizona Department of Transportation shows that nearly 130,000 crashes occurred throughout the state last year. And nearly 11,000 of those accidents involved more than two drivers and multiple injuries or even fatalities. Oftentimes, these accidents occur due to driver impairment or negligence.
Following these serious collisions, victims and their families often have to deal with insurance companies, emotional distress, and financial issues. However, those affected can seek help from a personal injury lawyer and learn more about protecting their legal rights or seeking compensation after a serious crash that occurred through no fault of their own.
