Phoenix, AZ (January 7, 2020) – The Phoenix Police Department responded to a serious multi-vehicle wreck on Interstate 10 on Tuesday night.
According to information from the scene, at least three vehicles collided in the right westbound lanes of I-10 at 51st Avenue around 8:10 p.m. Rescue units from the Phoenix Fire Department were at the scene to assist victims and closed the off-ramp at 51st to clear the crash debris. Paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after the wreck occurred and appeared to transport at least one victim to a local area hospital, although no word has been given on the severity of that victim’s injuries or any other victims’ injuries.

Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Arizona
According to data released by the Arizona Department of Transportation, nearly 130,000 crashes occurred throughout the state last year, with almost 11,000 involving at least two vehicles. Of the many highways in Arizona, 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.
