Phoenix, AZ (June 19, 2019) – A serious, multi-vehicle auto accident occurred on L-202 westbound at Priest Drive earlier Wednesday, July 19th.
The crash happened just before 12:15 p.m., with multiple vehicles involved and one vehicle that turned over on its side. All vehicles were blocking the HOV travel lane but lanes reopened just before 1:30 p.m.
Authorities advised other motorists to avoid the area, but injuries have yet to be reported, and the drivers involved have not been identified.
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families at this time.
Temperatures are on the rise and so is the number of cars on Arizona roads. The start of summer means an increase in traffic, with more drivers hitting the road for vacations or interstate travel, adding to the normal day-to-day traffic flow. Unfortunately, this increasing number of cars means more auto accidents, especially serious, dangerous collisions.
In fact, according to the 2018 Highway Safety Report, Arizona has seen an increase in the severity of auto accidents, including those with pedestrian deaths, other fatalities, and injuries. The results of these serious auto accidents are unexpected expenses and tragic circumstances for both victims and their families.
But those affected by these dangerous accidents can contact an auto accident attorney in Phoenix, and in some cases, get the justice and fair compensation they deserve.
