Phoenix, AZ (December 5, 2019) – A multi-vehicle crash flipped a Jeep onto its side and sent one person to the hospital on Thursday night in Phoenix.
According to authorities, the multi-vehicle crash happened near Seventh Street and Thunderbird Road around 7:00 p.m. The collision caused a Jeep to flip onto its side, and at least four other cars appeared to be involved.
The Phoenix Fire Department said one of the victims had to be freed from the vehicle, and four people were treated at the scene as a result of the accident. Three of the victims refused transport to the hospital, but one person was taken to a local trauma center via ambulance. Their current condition is not known.
The roadway was closed while the crash scene was cleaned up, and no further details were released. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Across Arizona, 55,000 total crashes occurred statewide in 2018 alone. And more than half of those accidents involved multiple vehicles and at least two injured victims. Furthermore, data from the Arizona Department of Transportation show that serious injury incidents are on the rise in Arizona, particularly those caused by impaired, distracted or otherwise negligent drivers.
Long-term injuries, expensive medical bills, and job loss or even death are just a few of the serious consequences that befall victims and their families after car accidents. However, those affected can contact a Phoenix injury lawyer for help. In some cases, victims can seek the fair compensation they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, especially when an accident occurs through no fault of their own.
