Phoenix, AZ (August 2, 2019) – A multi-vehicle accident on Friday, August 2nd, blocked the right lane of traffic on L-202 at 24th Street.
Officials on the scene say that the injury crash occurred around 6:43 p.m., when multiple vehicles traveling westbound collided near the 24th Street off-ramp on L-202, also known as the Red Mountain Freeway. Police and fire rescue units assisted the injured victims of the crash and were investigating the cause, though the drivers’ information, as well as their current conditions, have not been released at this time.
The lane was cleared just before 7:30 p.m.
More than 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018, according to a recent report from the Arizona Department of Transportation. And serious crashes are on the rise in Arizona, including multi-vehicle wrecks, with more than half involving multiple injuries and several vehicles.
Exorbitant medical expenses, serious long-term injuries and even job loss or death are some of the tragic consequences that befall victims and their families after a wreck. But those affected by these serious incidents can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help after a serious accident, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
