Phoenix, AZ (December 24, 2019) – An accident that involved one pickup truck and two SUVs closed the left lanes of Loop 101 on Tuesday afternoon and resulted in at least one serious injury.
Authorities said that the pickup truck, a dark-colored Toyota, collided with two other SUVs on Loop 101, also known as the Pima Freeway, around 6:30 p.m. Fire rescue units and emergency medical technicians were at the scene to assist the victims and take witness statements, though it’s unclear how many vehicles in total were involved in the crash.
Photos from the Arizona Department of Public Safety appeared to show at least four vehicles with crash damage. The crash remains under investigation, but an accident report notes that the cars collided in the HOV lane and left lane of eastbound L-101, just before 64th Street.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Multi-vehicle accidents in Phoenix are an unfortunate but common reality of life. From residential neighborhoods to busy highways, hundreds of multi-car crashes occur every day. Furthermore, a total of 97 deaths, 2,728 injuries and 516 instances of damaged property were recorded by the Arizona Department of Transportation in 2012 after accidents involving larger vehicles, including pickup trucks and SUVs. When it comes to these accidents, the results for victims are often devastating.
The nature of multi-car accidents, especially those involving larger vehicles, can make injuries and property damage much more serious. Victims could be facing an uphill battle with insurance companies and other drivers. But those affected by these sudden, unforeseen, and stressful crashes can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially when they’ve been involved in a wreck resulting from other drivers’ negligent actions.
