Phoenix, AZ (July 19, 2019) – A multiple vehicle accident on Friday afternoon, July 19th, blocked the right lane of US-60 eastbound past Rural Road.
According to authorities, the injury accident occurred when several vehicles traveling eastbound on US-60, also known as the Superstition Freeway, collided around 4:16 p.m. Fire rescue units, as well as the police, were on the scene to assist the victims of the crash and investigate the cause.

The number of vehicle accidents across the state is on the rise, with nearly 55,000 injuries and more than 1,000 deaths in 2018 alone from car accidents in Arizona. And according to recent reports and data from the Arizona Department of Transportation, the summer months bring more traffic to the roads, meaning a greater chance of these dangerous incidents.
Serious accidents can have tragic results for victims and their families, from exorbitant medical costs and long-term injuries to even job loss. However, victims and their families can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for assistance, and in some cases, seek their fair compensation and justice from a personal injury or death lawsuit.
