Phoenix, AZ (November 30, 2019) – Details have been released after a fatal multi-vehicle collision that involved a horse trailer on Sunday.
According to officers with the Phoenix Police Department, the wreck blocked all westbound lanes of Interstate 10 east of Casa Blanca at milepost 178. Arizona Department of Public Safety authorities said the horse escaped following the collision and was running on the roadway but was caught.
Authorities said that one victim died but have not said if others were injured or identified any of the victims.
Our condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
Nearly 130,000 crashes occurred throughout the state last year, with almost 11,000 involving at least two vehicles, according to data released by the Arizona Department of Transportation. And Interstate 10 claims one of the highest rates of severe multi-vehicle accidents among the many highways in Arizona. These multi-car crashes on Interstate 10 are more difficult for survivors and can lead to serious injuries or even death for those involved.
Serious crashes can cause emotional distress, long-term physical problems, issues with insurance companies, and even lost wages for victims. However, victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer and learn more about safeguarding their legal rights after a crash.
