Phoenix, AZ – Truck Crash Causing Injuries Reported on L-101 at McDowell
Phoenix, AZ (May 9, 2020) – A crash involving a truck and several sedans resulted in at least one serious injury on Loop 101 on Saturday.
According to officers from the Phoenix Police Department, the wreck occurred when a sedan rear-ended a tractor-trailer in the right southbound lanes of Loop 101, also known as the Pima Freeway. The collision occurred at the McDowell Road off-ramp around 4:30 p.m., and it appears that a chain-reaction accident resulted from the initial wreck.
Police and fire rescue units were dispatched to the scene to assist at least one seriously injured victim. It appeared that Phoenix paramedics transported that victim to the hospital via ambulance, but there is no update on their current condition or the pickup driver’s condition.
