The driver then over-corrected to get back onto the road and the car rolled over near Val Vista Drive and Hunt Highway.
Two of the minors were ejected from the vehicle, and three total people from the crash were taken to a local hospital with serious injuries, said McClimans.
The driver, 21-year-old Michelle Andrade, was impaired and arrested for numerous DUI-related aggravated assault and endangerment counts.

Injurious Car Wrecks in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation published its most recent crash report, which showed almost 35,000 accident injuries statewide in 2018. Of last year’s nearly 55,000 total accidents, more than half involved more than one injured victim. Oftentimes, victims may even succumb to their injuries, leaving grieving families to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of a serious accident.
Serious injuries, astronomical medical costs, and even job loss may plague victims and their families after a wreck. But those affected can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit when they’ve suffered in a wreck that occurred through no fault of their own.
