Phoenix, AZ (July 12, 2019) – A car accident on Thursday evening, July 11th, closed multiple lanes on Loop 101 westbound near State Route 51.
According to officials, the incident occurred around 9:41 p.m., which backed up traffic for several miles. Officials said the injury accident involved multiple vehicles across several lanes on L-101, also known as the Pima Freeway, blocking them.
Police and fire rescue units were on the scene to assist the auto accident victims. All lanes re-opened around 11:10 p.m., but identities of the injured victim(s) and their conditions have not yet been released.
Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the L-101 wreck.
Following a year-over-year increase in dangerous accidents across the state, almost 40,000 injury accidents occurred in Arizona in 2018. These serious accidents, involving injuries, fatalities, or both, have been steadily rising since 2016. And with the warmer temperatures of summer bringing more traffic to highways, the risk of these dangerous incidents increases.
