Phoenix, AZ (January 20, 2020) – A multi-vehicle wreck on Monday afternoon resulted in several injured victims.
Local authorities say the accident occurred when three SUVs collided in the right lanes of L-202 westbound, also known as the Red Mountain Freeway, before 24th Street around 4:00 p.m. Fire rescue and police units assisted injured victims and worked to determine the cause of the wreck, though they have not released the drivers’ information at this time.
The accident remains under investigation by officers from the Phoenix Police Department.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Statewide crash numbers from last year show that two or more vehicles were involved in more than half of the 55,000 total car accidents that occurred. The Arizona Transportation Department notes that those crashes resulted in nearly 35,000 injuries. Because of the nature of these multi-vehicle wrecks, victims and families could be paying a steep price.
Furthermore, those involved in multi-vehicle accidents may experience a number of tragic, unforeseen consequences after a wreck, from long-term medical expenses and serious injuries to even job loss or death. But those affected can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
