Tempe, AZ – Rear-End Crash Causes Injuries on L-101 Pima at US 60
Tempe, AZ (November 20, 2020) – At least one person was injured after a multi-car crash occurred in Tempe on Friday evening.
According to officials with the Arizona Department of Public Safety, it appears that at least two vehicles were involved in the accident, which happened around 7:30 p.m. in the southbound lanes of the Loop 101 Pima Freeway on the ramp to US 60 eastbound. DPS said no one was sustained life-threatening injuries, though Tempe paramedics were at the scene to treat victims and may have transported one victim to an area hospital.
The crash closed the left lanes at the transition of the L-101 Pima, though the freeway has since been reopened. Officers with the Tempe Police Department are still investigating the wreck at this time and have not released further details about the cause of the wreck or the extent of the victims’ injuries. Officers say that it appears to be a rear-end wreck, but no other information about the accident has been released.
The accident investigation continues at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Multi-Car Crashes in Arizona
