Injury Car Accidents in Arizona
Serious crashes cause thousands of serious injuries and claim hundreds of lives across the state yearly, especially on busy Arizona highways like Interstate 10. In fact, I-10 ranks in the top five deadliest roads in the country, with thousands of serious injury accidents each year. Despite an overall decline in the number of crashes and injuries on Arizona roads last year, traffic deaths were at their highest level in more than a decade.
Furthermore, there were 1,010 fatalities on the state’s roads last year, according to an annual crash facts report recently released by the Arizona Department of Transportation.
