Tucson, AZ (June 24, 2019) – An auto accident involving one vehicle and a motorcycle occurred late Sunday night, June 23rd.
According to Tucson Police, the driver and motorcyclist collided around 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of North 1st Avenue and Glenn Street. The motorcyclist sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and per the TPD, the driver of the vehicle is cooperating with the investigation.
The intersection was shut down for several hours but has since re-opened. Our thoughts go out to the victims, and we hope for a fast recovery for all involved.
Though there were fewer crashes and injuries as a result of auto accidents in Tucson last year, the number of fatalities increased. According to an Arizona Department of Transportation report that was released last week, 70 people were killed in auto accidents on Tucson roads last year, a slight increase from the 65 fatalities in the city in 2017. And with summer officially here, more traffic is on the roads, meaning a greater chance of dangerous auto accidents.
