Phoenix, AZ – Two Hospitalized After Rollover Car Crash at 39th Ave & Roosevelt St
Phoenix, AZ (January 1, 2021) – Two people are fighting for their lives in an area medical center after an early morning car crash occurred in Phoenix on New Year’s Day.
Per reports from the Phoenix Police Department, the accident happened at about 4:00 a.m. in the area of 39th Avenue and Roosevelt Street, which is located south of Interstate 10. News video from the scene showed one car flipped upside down on the hoods of two other vehicles that appeared to be parked in a driveway.
Officials with the Phoenix Fire Department said that two vehicles were involved in the crash. First responders dispatched to the scene say that a 22-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman were both in critical condition when they were transported to the hospital via ambulance.
Investigators are piecing together the events leading up to the crash, though they say that it’s not clear if impairment was a factor. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
Rollover Car Crashes in Arizona
Arizona authorities released a report that showed 130,000 collisions happened across the state in the last year alone. According to data released by the Arizona Department of Public Safety, more than 11,000 of these collisions involved at least two drivers and several injuries or deaths, particularly when the collisions are rollover car accidents. Furthermore, there has been a 19% increase in accidents and a 25% overall increase in fatalities across the state in the last decade. Serious motor vehicle crashes have also resulted in billions of dollars in economic losses to the state of Arizona over the past several years.
It’s clear that multi-car accidents causing injuries are an unfortunately common part of life in Arizona. When multiple victims are injured in an accident, they may have to deal with other drivers’ insurance companies, long-term physical pain, and expensive hospital bills. Occasionally, as a result of these incidents, victims succumb to their injuries, leaving their grieving families to cope with emotional trauma and financial difficulties as a result of another driver’s negligence.
