Phoenix, AZ (January 11, 2020) – A multi-vehicle accident on Saturday afternoon blocked the right lanes of traffic on Interstate 10 near 67th Avenue and resulted in multiple injured persons.
Officials at the scene of the crash said the accident occurred around 4:20 p.m., after multiple vehicles collided in the westbound lanes of I-10, also known as the Papago Freeway. Police and fire rescue units responded to the accident to assist injured victims and investigate the cause of the collision, which appeared to involve at least three vehicles.
The drivers’ information and their current conditions have not been released at this time, but authorities from the Phoenix Police Department are still investigating.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Authorities from the Arizona Department of Transportation say that more than 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018, part of a steady increase in injury accidents since 2015. In fact, nearly 55,000 accidents total occurred in Arizona last year, with the majority of those involving multiple vehicles and at least one or two seriously injured victims. Furthermore, several of these serious accidents took place on Interstate 10, a major thoroughfare through the state.
From costly medical expenses and serious long-term injuries to even job loss or death, tragic circumstances may plague victims and their families after a multi-car wreck. Due to the nature of these multi-vehicle accidents, victims may even struggle to get the coverage they deserve from insurance companies. But victims can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
