Phoenix, AZ (January 9, 2020) – A car accident blocked the left lanes of Interstate 17 near Indian School Road on Thursday and resulted in at least one seriously injured victim.
Officials say that the crash occurred when at least two sedans and one SUV collided in the left lanes of I-17 southbound, also known as the Black Canyon Freeway, at Indian School Road around 9:30 p.m.
Police and fire rescue units responded to the injury accident to assist victims and determine the cause of the wreck, though they have not released the drivers’ information at this time.
The accident remains under investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Officials from the Arizona Department of Transportation have released their latest crash data, showing that nearly 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018. And according to this accident data, more than half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes that occurred also involved more than one vehicle and several injured victims.
Tragic, unforeseen circumstances may plague victims and their families in the aftermath of a crash, including medical expenses and serious long-term injuries or even death. But those affected by these serious incidents can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
