Phoenix, AZ (July 27, 2019) – A multi-vehicle accident on Saturday afternoon, July 27th, blocked the right lanes of I-10 eastbound near 43rd Avenue.
Authorities were on the scene to investigate the accident around 5:53 p.m., which occurred when multiple vehicles traveling eastbound collided on I-10, also known as the Papago Freeway. Fire rescue units and police officers were assisting victims at the scene of the wreck, which appeared to involve at least two vehicles.
The right lane cleared around 7:00 p.m. but the traffic backup was still heavy in the area and the drivers’ information, as well as their conditions, had not been released.
Nearly 55,000 crashes and over 35,000 accident injuries occurred throughout Arizona in 2018, part of a year-over-year increase in severe wrecks since 2016. And according to data from the Arizona Department of Transportation, the summer months bring more traffic to state highways, leading to an increased risk of these serious incidents.
