Phoenix, AZ (September 9, 2019) – More details have emerged after several crashes occurred on Interstate 10 last week, causing at least one fatality.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety said that the wrecks happened on both sides of I-10, also referred to as the Papago Freeway, just west of Tonopah. First, six commercial trucks pulling box trailers rolled over on I-10 around mileposts 83 and 84, two of which crashed on the westbound side while the other four collided on the eastbound side.
One of the commercial truck drivers died and has now been identified as 69-year-old Ronald Huff of Oregon. Another driver was injured and was transported to an area hospital but the driver has not been identified.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of Ronald Huff at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
In 2012, the Arizona Department of Transportation reported a total of 97 fatalities, 2,728 injuries and 516 cases of damaged property following nearly 12,500 truck and bus accidents.
When it comes to truck accidents, especially those involving tractor-trailers, injuries and property damage are oftentimes much more serious. When victims are involved in these commercial truck crashes, they could be facing an uphill battle with costly medical bills, insurance companies, and long-term physical issues. However, those affected by these sudden accidents can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially when they’ve been involved in a wreck that occurred through no fault of their own.
