Scottsdale, AZ – Injuries Reported in Rollover Crash on L-101 at McDonald Dr
Scottsdale, AZ (October 13, 2019) – On Friday morning, a rollover crash on Loop 101 resulted in traffic delays and sent at least one victim to the hospital.
Officers determined that the wreck occurred around 6:00 a.m. and involved at least two vehicles. It appears that one sedan may have clipped and collided with another vehicle, resulting in a rollover in the right lanes of L-101, also called the Pima Freeway, just before McDonald Drive.
The driver and other occupants of the car that rolled were seriously injured, and it appears that one of the victims was transported to the hospital via ambulance by Scottsdale paramedics. An officer noted that the rolled car was on its side when authorities responded to the wreck. It sustained extensive damage and had to be towed from the scene, along with another vehicle involved.
Officers from the Scottsdale Police Department closed the affected lanes, leaving only one lane of traffic open on L-101 Pima. The affected stretch of the Pima Freeway remained almost impassable for several hours, even after the crash was cleared around 7:00 a.m. Authorities advised drivers to exit early and avoid the area while investigated the cause of the wreck and cleared the scene.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a quick recovery.
Injurious Collisions in Arizona
In one year alone, more than 36,000 car accidents occurred in Arizona. These wrecks led to nearly 55,000 total injuries or hospitalizations in 2018. But those injured in these serious incidents are affected for months or even years after the initial accident. In fact, victims often experience long-term mental and physical distress, especially when they’re involved in an accident caused by another driver’s negligence.
When an accident occurs through no fault of their own, victims are forced to negotiate with insurance companies, cover expensive medical treatment, and deal with lost wages while they recover. But victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer. In some cases, a skilled attorney can seek justice and the fair compensation victims deserve from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
