Phoenix, AZ (August 11, 2019) – An injury accident on Sunday afternoon, August 11th, blocked the left lane and HOV lane of Loop 202 at Tempe Town Lake.
According to authorities, the crash occurred just before 1:20 p.m. and involved at least two sedans, which collided in the HOV and left lanes of L-202 westbound, also known as the Red Mountain Freeway, near McClintock Road and Tempe Town Lake. Police and fire rescue units responded to the crash, assisting injured victims and investigating the cause of the multi-vehicle wreck. However, the drivers’ information and the extent of their injuries have not been released at this time.
All lanes were cleared by 2:30 p.m.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recoveries.
Accident information and data for 2018 was recently released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, which showed that more than 35,000 injuries occurred across the state throughout the year and nearly 55,000 car accidents total occurred, with more than half involving at least two injured victims and two or more vehicles.
From costly medical bills and long-term injuries to job loss or even death, tragic circumstances may plague victims and their families after a serious accident. But those affected can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek compensation and justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
