Phoenix, AZ (July 26, 2019) – An injury accident late Friday evening, July 26th, closed the HOV lane on L-202 westbound near Dobson Road.
Officials were on the scene of the accident around 10:37 p.m., which appeared to involve at least two vehicles on L-202 westbound, also known as the Red Mountain Freeway. Police and fire rescue units responded to assist injured victims and investigate the cause of the multi-vehicle accident.
All lanes reopened before 11:30 p.m., though the drivers’ information and their conditions have not been released at this time.
According to information from the Arizona Department of Transportation, nearly 55,000 accidents and more than 1,000 deaths occurred in 2018 alone, part of a year-over-year rise in severe crashes. And there’s more traffic on Arizona roads now that summer is here, leading to a greater danger of these hazardous wrecks.
These wrecks can mean tragic consequences, like long-term injuries, costly medical bills, and even job loss or death. However, victims and their families affected by these serious incidents can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
