As Tucson car accident attorneys, we were very sorry to hear that four people were injured in a collision on February 8, 2012 at 6 p.m., and three had to be sent to the trauma center for their injuries. Two people had to be extricated from their vehicle with the Jaws of Life, according to the Arizona Daily Star. The crash happened at the intersection of Oracle and Eagle Crest Ranch Boulevard. One patient had to be airlifted by Life Net, and another refused treatment at the scene but was driven to the hospital by a family member. We hope everyone fully recovers from their injuries.
