Mesa, AZ – Injuries Reported After Truck Hits House at McLellan Rd
Mesa, AZ (November 6, 2019) – Injuries and extensive damage were reported after a pickup truck crashed into a home in Mesa on Wednesday evening.
The accident happened near Country Club Road on McLellan Road, which is south of McKellips Road. News video showed that the truck went into the front of the home. The short brick wall between the house and a neighbor’s property was also damaged. Authorities say that it’s possible that the pickup plowed through both walls before crashing into the home.
A neighbor said a man got out of the truck with his wife and a baby and then returned to his truck, driving away from the scene. A woman was in the house at the time and sustained minor injuries in the accident.
Mesa paramedics arrived at the scene of the crash shortly after it occurred to treat the woman, but it is unclear if she was transported to the hospital.
Authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident and have not found the driver of the pickup truck. They believe that impairment or driver distraction is responsible for the incident.
Our thoughts are with those involved in the accident, including the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
Injurious Accidents in Arizona
From speeding and reckless driving to driving under the influence, distracted or negligent drivers can cause serious accidents. In fact, studies show that nearly 90 percent of accidents and crash injuries across the country are caused by some form of driver negligence.
When drivers fail to obey traffic laws and operate their vehicles safely, victims and their families are left to pick up the pieces. Oftentimes, the victims of serious accidents have to deal with long-term injuries, property damage, costly medical expenses, and even job loss. But those affected can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek a fair settlement from a personal injury suit or wrongful death suit.
