Phoenix, AZ (November 19, 2019) – A police officer was transported to the hospital after a three-vehicle crash in Phoenix on Tuesday night.
Per reports from the Phoenix Fire Department, the crash happened in the area of 32nd Street and Broadway Road around 5:45 p.m. While the initial report from fire rescue units had crews prepared for an extrication operation, the first firefighters on the scene determined that it was not necessary.
The officer was taken to the hospital via ambulance, and the other two people involved in the crash chose not to go to the hospital, according to a spokesman for the Phoenix Fire Department. It’s not clear what happened in the moments leading up to the crash, though the Phoenix Police Department is investigating at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Of the 55,000 total crashes that occurred statewide in 2018, more than half involved multiple vehicles and at least two injured victims. According to data from the Arizona Department of Transportation, serious injury wrecks are on the rise in Arizona, especially those caused by distracted or otherwise negligent drivers.
Critical long-term injuries, expensive medical bills, and even job loss are just a few of the serious consequences that affect victims and their families following car wrecks. But those affected can contact a Phoenix injury lawyer for help. In some cases, victims may seek the fair compensation they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit when a wreck occurs through no fault of their own.
