Phoenix, AZ (June 19, 2019) – An auto accident occurred just before midnight on Monday, June 17th, near Interstate 17 at Cactus.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety had to remove the vehicle from the canal following the rollover crash, which happened around 12:00 a.m. DPS states that only one vehicle appeared to be involved and ended up in the canal after crashing on the Interstate 17 offramp. The 32-year-old driver is from New Mexico and was driving a rental car at the time of the auto accident. They sustained minor injuries.
We hope for a speedy recovery for the victim.
With the official start of summer just around the corner, the number of vehicles on the roads in Arizona is rising. That rising number means the risk of dangerous auto accidents is heightened. And according to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the number of collisions involving injuries or fatalities has grown over the last 10 years – in fact, 2018 saw more traffic deaths than any other year in the past decade.
