Phoenix, AZ – Chain-Reaction Collision Causes Injuries on L-101 at Northern Ave
Phoenix, AZ (June 16, 2020) – Officers from the Phoenix Police Department said that injuries were reported in a multi-vehicle crash on Tuesday afternoon.
According to officers, the accident occurred around 4:30 p.m. At least four or five vehicles collided in the southbound lanes of L-101, also known as the Agua Fria Freeway, near Northern Avenue. It appears that the accident may have been a chain-reaction collision initially caused by a rear-end accident, though several vehicles were photographed with damage on the side of the highway.
Phoenix paramedics were at the scene and appeared to transport at least one victim to a local area hospital; however, police are still investigating the crash at this time. Authorities dispatched to the scene of the crash have not yet provided an update on the victims’ current conditions.

Injurious Rear-End Collisions in Arizona
Whether they’re speeding and driving recklessly or driving under the influence, distracted or negligent drivers can cause serious accidents. In fact, studies show that nearly 90% of accidents across the country are caused by some form of driver negligence, including impairment and distraction. These factors are especially prevalent when it comes to serious rear-end collisions.
When drivers fail to obey traffic laws and operate their vehicles safely, victims and their families pay the price. Oftentimes, the victims of serious crashes 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.
