Tucson, AZ (June 21, 2019) – An auto accident closed State Route 386 to Kitt Peak on Thursday, June 20th, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Vehicles at the top of the peak were allowed to leave the area but no new vehicles were permitted in the area. The road closure lasted several hours; however, information about the victims and their status has not been released, per the ADOT.
Our thoughts go out to the victims and their families. We hope for a quick recovery for all involved.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, auto accidents are on the rise. In 2017 alone, 127,064 auto accidents resulted in more than 900 deaths and 55,000 injuries. And now that summer is officially here, more vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians are outside and on the road. This overall increase in traffic means an even higher number of serious auto accidents, especially those involving injuries and fatalities.
