Scottsdale, AZ (September 7, 2019) – Multiple vehicles collided and blocked two lanes on the Pima Freeway near Hayden Road on Saturday afternoon.
Per information from officials on the scene, the multi-car accident occurred when a white SUV, a burgundy Acura sedan, a black sedan, and a gray sedan collided in the right and center lanes of Loop 101, also called the Pima Freeway. The drivers were able to partially pull onto the shoulder, though the wreck blocked traffic for at least two miles.
Fire rescue units and police authorities were on the scene to assist the injured victims and determine the cause of the wreck, though the extent of the injuries is not known at this time. Local police responded to the accident around 2:30 p.m. and were able to clear the accident by 3:00 p.m.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
The latest crash report published by the Arizona Department of Transportation showed that there were more than 130,000 crashes across the state in 2018. Sadly, a large portion of these wrecks resulted in numerous injured victims. In fact, approximately 37,000 involved at least two separate injured drivers, passengers, or pedestrians.
When drivers or their passengers are injured in a wreck, it exacerbates the stress they already feel from the accident. Wreck victims will often have to document damage, deal with insurance companies, and take time away from work. They may also be affected by costly medical bills and long-term physical problems as a result of the injuries sustained. But victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially if they’ve been involved in a crash due to the negligence of another driver.
