Tucson, AZ (August 21, 2019) – An injury wreck blocked the left lane of Interstate 10 before Sunset Road on Wednesday afternoon, August 21st.
Officials at the scene say that the accident occurred when multiple vehicles collided in the left lanes of I-10 eastbound before Sunset Road around 4:10 p.m. Police and fire rescue units responded to assist injured victims and investigate the cause of the injury accident. However, they have not released the drivers’ information or the extent of the injuries involved.
All lanes reopened by 5:00 p.m.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT)’s latest crash report showed that nearly 35,000 accident injuries occurred across the state in 2018. This recent data also showed that more than half of last year’s 55,000 total crashes involved two or more vehicles and at least two injured victims.
These injury wrecks can mean tragic circumstances for victims and their families, from long-term medical expenses and missed work to even job loss or death. But those affected by these serious incidents can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
