According to a recent report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, almost 55,000 accidents and more than 35,000 injuries occurred across the state in 2018 alone. ADOT’s data also shows that serious accidents are on the rise, especially multi-vehicle accidents, with more than half of the yearly total involving multiple injuries and several vehicles.
