Phoenix, AZ – Rear-End Crash Causes Injuries on I-17 at Pioneer Rd
Phoenix, AZ (October 17, 2020) – A multi-vehicle wreck occurred on Interstate 17 before the Pioneer Road off-ramp on Saturday afternoon, resulting in at least one injury.
Per official information from the scene, the multi-vehicle crash happened when at least two vehicles collided in the right lanes of I-17 southbound, also known as the Black Canyon Freeway, at the Pioneer Road off-ramp around 5:30 p.m. Though officers with the Phoenix Police Department didn’t release specific details on how the accident occurred at this time, it appears that one pickup truck and one SUV collided in an apparent rear-end crash in the right lane of the highway.
Fire rescue and police officials were also at the scene to assist victims but have not released the drivers’ information or provided an update on the victims’ current conditions.
The accident remains under investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Rear-End Car Wrecks in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation has released its latest accident data, showing that 35,000 crash injuries occurred across the state last year. Furthermore, nearly 55,000 total accidents occurred in Arizona, with more than half of those 2018 wrecks involving at least two injured victims and multiple vehicles.
It’s clear the multi-vehicle accidents are an unfortunate reality of life across the state. Sadly, victims and their families often pay the price in the aftermath of a crash.
