Phoenix, AZ (July 19, 2019) – An injury accident on Friday afternoon, July 19th, blocked the HOV lane of Loop 202 eastbound past Center Road.
Authorities say that the injury accident occurred when multiple vehicles traveling eastbound on L-202, also known as the Red Mountain Freeway, collided around 4:30 p.m. Fire rescue and police units were on the scene to assist the victims of the crash and investigate. At least two vehicles appeared to be involved in the collision.
Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the crash at this time and have not released the victims’ information.
Car accidents are an unfortunate reality of life, with nearly 55,000 injuries and more than 1,000 deaths in 2018 alone from car accidents in Arizona. And according to the Arizona Department of Transportation, summer weather brings more traffic to the roads, meaning a greater chance of these dangerous incidents for vehicles, motorcyclists, and pedestrians.
These serious accidents can have dramatic, tragic consequences for victims and their families, from long-term injuries and exorbitant medical costs to even job loss. But victims and their families can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for assistance, and in some cases, seek their fair compensation and justice from a personal injury or death lawsuit.
