Phoenix, AZ – Two Hospitalized After Car Crash at 35th Ave & Indian School Rd
Phoenix, AZ (September 19, 2020) – Impairment is being investigated as a possible cause of a car crash that occurred in Phoenix on Saturday night, sending two people to the hospital.
Firefighters were called to the intersection of 35th Avenue and Indian School Road, also known as the Phoenix-Wickenburg Highway, around 10:00 p.m. Once they arrived at the scene, they found that two adults were injured in the crash. One of the victims sustained serious injuries while the other has minor injuries, and both were transported to an area medical center via ambulance.
There’s no word yet on what caused the accident. Officers with the Phoenix Police Department say that impairment may have been a factor and that at least two vehicles were involved. It’s unclear whether the victims were traveling in the same car.
The accident remains under investigation at this time, and officers haven’t released further details.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their speedy recovery.
Injury Car Accidents in Arizona
A recent crash report released by the Arizona Department of Transportation showed almost 35,000 accident injuries statewide in 2018. Of that year’s nearly 55,000 total accidents, more than half involved several injured victims. Oftentimes, victims may even succumb to those injuries, causing a devastating situation that leaves grieving families to pick up the pieces.
In fact, there were 1,010 fatalities on the state’s roads last year, according to the annual crash facts report released Tuesday by the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Those involved in multi-vehicle accidents may experience a number of tragic, unforeseen consequences after a wreck, from long-term medical expenses and serious injuries to even job loss or death. Those affected can contact a Phoenix crash lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
