Buckeye Valley, AZ – Two Killed in Multi-Car Crash at Baseline & Turner Rds
Buckeye Valley, AZ (October 23, 2020) – Two people were killed after a head-on accident in Buckeye Valley near Baseline Road and Turner Road early Friday morning.
According to reports from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), two vehicles were involved in the crash, which occurred around 4:40 a.m.
One vehicle had a man inside who was pronounced dead on the scene. MCSO found a woman inside the other car, along with two children and an infant. The woman was transported to the hospital via ambulance with life-threatening injuries. Medical authorities say she later died at the hospital.
The two children and the infant were also transported to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. They are expected to recover.
This is an ongoing investigation, and MCSO says it’s unclear whether impairment or speed were factors in the accident.
Baseline Road was closed between Wilson Road and Turner Road for the accident investigation, which continues at this time.
Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the deceased victims. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Fatal Car Accidents in Arizona
According to authorities with the Department of Public Safety, there were thousands of accidents last year, hundreds of which resulted in deaths in Arizona. Furthermore, Arizona has some of the most dangerous roads in the entire country, including several of the freeway loops and Interstate 10, which stretches from Phoenix to California. This stretch of highway alone sees an average of 85 deaths per year, and the entire state averages 700 traffic deaths each year.
Many of these fatalities are the result of driver negligence or accidents on the highway. When it comes to highway accidents, victims may suffer from long-term physical issues, costly medical bills, and even job loss or death as a result of their serious injuries. The nature of these collisions means that victims sustain more serious injuries or even lose their lives as a result of the accident.
