Scottsdale, AZ (August 7, 2019) – A multi-vehicle crash on Wednesday afternoon, August 7th, blocked the HOV lane of Loop 101 before Shea Boulevard.
According to authorities, the multi-vehicle accident occurred around 5:55 p.m. when two sedans collided in the HOV lane of L-101, also known as the Pima Freeway, at Shea Blvd. Police and fire rescue units responded to the crash shortly after it occurred and were assisting injured victims, as well as investigating the cause of the crash.
All lanes were cleared by 6:30 p.m., though the drivers’ information and their current conditions have not been released at this time.
A recent report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation shows that more than 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018. In fact, ADOT’s newest data was part of a year-over-year rise in serious wrecks since 2015. And out of the nearly 55,000 total accidents last year, more than half of those involved multiple injuries and several vehicles.
