Phoenix, AZ – Man Critically Injured in Crash on I-10 at Buckeye Rd
Phoenix, AZ (May 24, 2020) – A car accident in Phoenix sent one man to the hospital in critical condition on Friday afternoon.
Per reports from officers with the Phoenix Police Department, the crash happened just before 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon on Interstate 10 at Buckeye Road, close to the I-17 Split. One person was ejected in the two-vehicle crash, and two other people were trapped inside their vehicle.
Police say one man was transported to Banner University in critical condition. A woman and a child were also evaluated and treated at the scene, though they refused transport to the hospital. The westbound lanes of Interstate 10 were closed at the Interstate 17 Split interchange so that officers could investigate, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
However, further details on the cause of the crash have not been released at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Arizona
Recent data released by the Arizona Department of Transportation show that nearly 130,000 crashes occurred throughout the state last year. Of those wrecks, almost 11,000 involved at least two vehicles. Interstate 10 claims one of the highest rates of serious multi-vehicle accidents. These multi-car crashes mean more stress for victims and can result in serious injuries, affecting the parties involved on a long-term basis.
In fact, multi-vehicle accidents can cause emotional distress, long-term physical problems, issues with insurance companies, and even lost wages for victims. However, victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer and learn more about safeguarding their legal rights after a crash.
