Vicksburg, AZ (July 26, 2019) – An injury accident late Friday evening, July 26th, closed US 60 in both directions near Vicksburg.
Officials were on the scene around 9:30 p.m. The accident appeared to involve at least two vehicles on US 60 at milepost 48, near Vicksburg and Hope. Police and fire rescue units responded to the accident in order to assist injured victims and investigate the cause of the wreck.
All lanes reopened shortly before 10:30 p.m., though the drivers’ information, as well as their conditions, have not been released at this time.
Nearly 55,000 accidents and more than 1,000 fatalities happened in 2018 alone, part of a year-over-year increase in serious crashes, according to data from the Transportation Department of Arizona. And now that summer is here, there is more traffic on Arizona highways, leading to a higher risk of these dangerous wrecks.
