Glendale, AZ – Injuries Reported in Multi-Car Crash at 56th Ave & Northern Ave
Glendale, AZ (October 30, 2019) – A collision shut down both directions of Northern Avenue and resulted in several injuries on Tuesday.
According to officials from the Glendale Police Department, officers responded to a multi-vehicle collision in the area of 56th Avenue and Northern Avenue on Tuesday evening. Per Sgt. John Roth, a spokesman for the Glendale Police Department, a vehicle speeding eastbound on Northern Avenue struck another vehicle and pushed it into westbound traffic. At that point, the vehicle hit another car in the westbound lanes.
At least two of the three cars involved were occupied by children, said Roth. Impairment does appear to be a factor in the accident, and minor injuries were reported, including injuries to an 8-year-old girl. It appears that one victim was transported to an area hospital.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Injurious Multi-Car Crashes in Arizona
A recent accident report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation showed that there were more than 130,000 crashes across the state in 2018. Unfortunately, these wrecks resulted in numerous injuries, and at least 37,000 wrecks involved two or more victims with serious injuries. These injuries, oftentimes requiring medical attention or hospitalization, can affect victims and their families for months or even years after an accident.
In fact, victims have to cope with both physical problems and emotional trauma. Wreck victims may be required to document their injuries, negotiate with insurance companies, and take time from work, resulting in lost wages. Thankfully, victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially if they’ve been involved in a wreck caused by the negligence of another driver.
