The experienced Arizona car crash attorneys we’re saddened to hear of a recent car crash which involved 11 high school students in Gilbert. On Wednesday, September 28, 2011, a four-vehicle car accident happened near East Valley High School. According to reports from AZ Family, a pick-up truck rear-ended another pick-up truck and then struck two more vehicles. The occupants of the vehicles appear to have only sustained minor injuries. Most of the people involved in the car accident were treated at the scene; however, there were two students who were transported to a local hospital.
Initial investigations by Gilbert Police indicate that the cause of the collision was inattentiveness and the speeding. The at-fault party for this accident may face traffic violations such as running a red light (ARS 28-644), reckless driving (ARS 29-693), and speeding (ARS 28-701 to 710). We certainly hope all students involved will recover as soon as possible from their injuries.
