Phoenix, AZ (July 20, 2019) – A car accident on Saturday morning, July 20th, resulted in multiple injuries and a damaged home at 21st Avenue and Sunnyside Avenue.
According to Phoenix police, the accident occurred near 21st Avenue and Sunnyside Avenue after two drivers got into a traffic dispute near 19th Avenue and Peoria Avenue. One driver drove away from the dispute and the other driver followed him, crashing into the back of his car.
The impact of that collision pushed the victim’s car into a house. Authorities say the homeowners were not at home when the crash occurred.

With nearly 55,000 injuries and more than 1,000 fatalities from car accidents reported last year, multi-vehicle crashes are on the rise in Arizona. Since 2016, the Arizona Department of Transportation data shows that the summer months bring more vehicles to the highway, increasing the risk of these dangerous accidents.
