Phoenix, AZ (January 27, 2020) – Nine people were injured in a multi-vehicle crash in Phoenix on Monday morning, per reports from the Phoenix Fire Department.
The incident occurred near 27th Avenue and Van Buren around 7:25 a.m. The Phoenix Fire Department responded to the scene and found nine victims involved in the crash. It appears that the collision occurred when a black SUV ran a red light and collided with a white sedan. Phoenix police officers say that a 12-year-old girl and a 7-year-old girl were both transported to a local hospital.
Both drivers remained on the scene and impairment is not a factor, said Sgt. Maggie Cox, a public relations officer for the Phoenix Police Department. The investigation is still ongoing.

Injurious Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Arizona
Per data released by the Arizona Department of Public Safety, nearly 130,000 crashes occurred in Arizona last year alone. More than 11,000 of these accidents involved at least two drivers and multiple injuries or even fatalities.
When multiple victims sustain injuries in an accident, they may have to deal with other drivers’ insurance companies, physical distress, emotional trauma, and long-term financial difficulties. Occasionally, victims succumb to their injuries from these accidents, leaving grieving families to pick up the pieces. Due to the negligence of other drivers, families are forced to cope with tragic consequences, all while mourning their lost loved ones.
However, the victims and their families affected by these wrecks can seek help from an injury attorney. A skilled attorney can help victims seek justice and the fair compensation they deserve from suffering in an accident that occurred through no fault of their own.
