Phoenix, AZ – Five-Car Wreck Causes Injuries on I-10 at SR 143
Phoenix, AZ (July 4, 2020) – A multi-vehicle wreck closed the left lanes of Interstate 10 approaching State Route 143 on Saturday afternoon and resulted in at least one injury, per reports from the Phoenix Police Department.
Officials say that the accident occurred when at least five vehicles collided in the left lanes of I-10 westbound approaching State Route 143 around 6:15 p.m. Police and fire rescue units responded to the scene and were assisting injured victims. However, authorities were still working to determine the cause of the crash and have not released the drivers’ information at this time.
It appears that two pickup trucks and one sedan were involved in the chain-reaction crash, though further details were not made available.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Arizona
Per the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) data, nearly 35,000 injuries occurred across the state last year as a result of car crashes. And more than half of the 55,000 total crashes that occurred last year involved more than two vehicles. Furthermore, major thoroughfares like Interstate 10 in Arizona saw a disproportionate number of these serious wrecks.
Multi-vehicle wrecks can have tragic results for victims and their families, including long-term medical expenses and serious injuries. However, those affected by these serious incidents can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
