Phoenix, AZ (February 3, 2020) – At least one person is dead and others are injured after an early-morning multi-vehicle accident on State Route 87 northeast of Phoenix.
According to the Department of Public Safety, the accident occurred just before 6:00 a.m. Investigators closed SR 87 between Gilbert Road and Shea Boulevard while they cleared the wreckage and collected evidence.
No details were immediately available, but the crash remains under investigation.
Our condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time.
Multi-vehicle accidents in Arizona are an unfortunate reality of life for drivers across the state. In fact, more than half of the total car wrecks that occurred across the state involved at least two drivers last year. According to a recent report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, more than 25,000 accidents involved multiple vehicles in 2018 alone.
Exorbitant medical costs, serious long-term injuries, and job stresses or even job loss are just a few of the devastating consequences that can affect victims and their families after an accident. But those affected can contact a Phoenix personal injury lawyer for help, and in some cases, victims may seek the fair compensation they deserve from wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit.
