Pine, AZ (August 17, 2019) – An injury accident blocked multiple lanes on State Route 87 in Pine, past Payson, on Saturday afternoon, August 17th.
Authorities at the scene say that at least two vehicles collided in the center lanes of SR 87 northbound in Pine, past Payson, around 12:45 p.m. First responders were at the scene shortly after the accident occurred, assisting the injured victims and investigating the cause of the crash. However, officials have not released the drivers’ information or details about their injuries at this time.
All lanes reopened by 2:30 p.m., after nearly two hours of backup and only one lane available until then.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
The Arizona Department of Transportation’s most recent report showed nearly 35,000 accident injuries across the state in 2018. And this recent crash data also reported that over half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes involved two or more injuries and multiple vehicles.
Long-term medical expenses, severe injuries, and even job loss are just a few of the tragic consequences that can affect both victims and their families after a crash. However, those affected by these unfortunate incidents can contact a Phoenix car accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
