A car crash involving three vehicles was reported earlier this week. One of the vehicles that got caught in the crash was that of an Avondale police officer (AZ Central 2/15/2011).
According to police report, the Avondale car accident happened near Dysart Road and Van Buren Street Tuesday morning when a car pulled out of a parking and hit the police car which was heading southbound on Dysart. The impact caused the patrol car to hit a dump truck before coming to a stop. The driver of the car that initiated the collision faces citation for failure to yield to oncoming traffic.
It was fortunate that the accident did not result in any injuries as many cases of car accidents do. Each year, millions get hurt from vehicle crashes in the United States, while tens of thousands lose their lives due to their injuries. These numbers have made car accidents a big threat to human life. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that at its present rate, motor vehicle crashes are expected to become the third most serious threat to human health by 2020.
