Phoenix, AZ (July 15, 2019) – A multi-vehicle crash on Monday afternoon, July 15th, blocked almost all lanes on L-101 eastbound near 16th Street.
According to officials, the injury accident occurred around 12:15 p.m. and appeared to involve multiple vehicles that collided in the center of the highway, blocking all lanes other than the HOV lane. Police and fire rescue authorities were on the scene, assisting victims and determining the cause of the wreck.
