Phoenix, AZ (July 26, 2019) – An injury accident on Friday evening, July 26th, closed the transition ramp to L-303 from I-10.
According to officials on the scene, the collision occurred around 6:45 p.m. and appeared to involve at least two vehicles which collided on I-10 westbound, also known as the Papago Freeway, and closed the transition ramp to L-303 northbound. Police and fire rescue units responded to the accident to assist victims and investigate the cause of the wreck.
The drivers’ identities and the extent of their injuries have not been released, but the ramp reopened just before 7:30 p.m.
Data from the Arizona Department of Transportation indicates that in 2018, nearly 55,000 accidents and more than 1,000 deaths occurred, peaking in a year-over-year increase in severe accidents. And there’s more traffic on Arizona highways now that summer is here, leading to a greater danger of these hazardous wrecks.
