Tucson, AZ – Serious Injuries Reported in 2 Multi-Car Collisions on Irvington Rd
Tucson, AZ (November 2, 2019) – Two collisions on Irvington Road resulted in serious injuries, major road closures, and power outages to neighboring residences on Friday evening.
Per reports from the Tucson Police Department, traffic investigators responded to a hit-and-run collision at Irvington Road and Campbell Avenue involving a pedestrian on Friday. Sgt. Pete Dugan, a public information officer with the Tucson Police Department, said that the driver fled the scene and the man who was hit was transported to a local area hospital via ambulance with life-threatening injuries.
Tucson police are also investigating another crash in the same area, which happened a few minutes prior. A multi-car collision on Irvington Road and Mountain Avenue caused power outages to thousands of Tucson Electric Power customers on Friday evening. The crash caused one car to roll into a power pole near the intersection of Irvington Road and Mountain Avenue, resulting in the power outage.
Dugan said that one of the drivers fled the scene on foot but was later apprehended.
The investigation is ongoing, though police do not believe the two collisions are related.

Injurious Multi-Car Crashes in Arizona
The Arizona Department of Transportation’s recent accident report showed that there were more than 130,000 crashes across the state in 2018. Unfortunately, these wrecks resulted in numerous injuries. In fact, at least 37,000 wrecks involved at least two victims with serious injuries requiring medical attention or hospitalization.
When drivers or their passengers are wounded in a crash, they often have to cope with both physical problems and emotional trauma. Wreck victims may be required to document their injuries, negotiate with insurance companies, and take time away from work, resulting in lost wages. Thankfully, victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially if they’ve been involved in a wreck caused by the negligence of another driver.
