Tortilla Flat, AZ (August 11, 2019) – A serious injury crash early Sunday morning, August 11th, closed State Route 88 eastbound, near Tortilla Flat and Roosevelt.
Authorities say that the injury accident occurred just before 1:00 a.m. and involved at least two vehicles that collided and veered off SR 88 at milepost 218, near Roosevelt and Tortilla Flat. Police and fire rescue units were assisting injured victims and working to determine the cause of the crash, but the drivers’ information, as well as the extent of the victims’ injuries, has not been released.
The highway remained closed at milepost 213 for several hours.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recoveries.
A recent Arizona Department of Transportation report showed that more than 35,000 injuries occurred across the state in 2018 out of nearly 55,000 wrecks total. Plus, more than half of those total accidents occurring statewide last year involved at least two vehicles and two injured victims.
From long-term injuries to medical costs and property damage or even job loss, tragic consequences may befall both victims and their families after a serious crash. Fortunately, those affected can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek the fair compensation they deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
