Phoenix, AZ – UPDATE: Three Injured & Two Killed in Fatal Rollover Crash on I-17 at L-303
Phoenix, AZ (December 6, 2020) – Two people are dead and three more were seriously injured after a rollover accident occurred in north Phoenix on Saturday night.
According to reports from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, troopers responded to the crash on southbound Interstate 17 near the on-ramp from Loop 303. DPS officials and officers with the Phoenix Police Department say that a vehicle rolled over after a crash in the area, coming to rest about 20 to 30 yards off the right shoulder from the highway. Three people in the back seat were ejected from the car, and two of the victims were dead by the time authorities arrived.
Authorities from the Phoenix Fire Department said that one 30-year-old victim was taken to a hospital via ambulance in extremely critical condition. A 19-year-old and a 22-year-old were also transported to the hospital in serious condition.
The ages and names of the two people who died in the crash have not been released, and it’s unclear how the crash occurred.
The investigation is ongoing.
Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the deceased victims. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
Rollover Car Accidents in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation published its most recent crash report, which showed almost 35,000 accident injuries statewide in 2018. Of last year’s nearly 55,000 total accidents, more than half involved more than one injured victim and several of those accidents were reported as rollover wrecks in Arizona. Oftentimes, victims may even succumb to their injuries after a rollover wreck, leaving grieving families to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of a serious accident.
Serious injuries, astronomical medical costs, and even job loss may plague victims and their families after a wreck. But those affected can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help, and in some cases, seek fair compensation from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
