Phoenix, AZ (September 7, 2019) – On Saturday morning, a three-car wreck blocked the HOV lane on Interstate 10 close to the Loop 202 Santan and South Mountain Freeways.
Per information from authorities, two SUVs and one sedan collided in the left eastbound lanes of I-10, also known as the Papago Freeway. A silver SUV rear-ended a tan Toyota sedan and a white SUV immediately collided with the two. Emergency medical crews arrived shortly after the accident to render aid to injured parties.
Authorities are still investigating the wreck and have not released any information in regards to the extent of the victims’ injuries.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Phoenix
A major trans-continental interstate, Interstate 10 runs from California to Florida and is a major thoroughfare for travel in Phoenix and Tucson. Recent data shows that it’s one of the most dangerous highways in the country, ranking in the top five of the 50 most dangerous highways. Nearly 130,000 total crashes occurred in Arizona in 2018, both on and off Interstate 10, with more than half involving at least two vehicles.
The fallout from multi-vehicle wrecks can be extremely difficult for those involved to deal with. Talking with insurance companies, coping with long-term injuries, and taking time away from work are just a few of the consequences that affect victims and their families. However, those affected can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially when they’ve been involved in a wreck resulting from other drivers’ negligent actions.
