As multi-vehicle car accident attorneys, we’ve seen many crashes over the years, but the severity of these collisions always brings us deep grief, such as the multi-vehicle crash that occurred Saturday morning, March 3, according to ABC 15. The crash, which involved between four and six vehicles, happened on Northbound Loop 101 at the Bell Road crossing and caused lanes three, four, and five to be blocked for much of the day.
Police have reported serious damage to the vehicles as well as severe injuries to several people involved in the crash. Confirmation on the number of vehicles and the severity of injuries sustained in the crash has not been released. Our hearts are with the families of those involved in this collision and we hope that everyone involved heals quickly.
The Dangers of a Multi-Vehicle Accident
This Peoria car accident is one of nearly 88,000 multi-vehicle collisions that occur in Arizona each year, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). Rear end collisions accounted for nearly half of these accidents in 2010. Multi-vehicle collisions involving more than two cars are typically the result of a previous accident that is not expected by approaching drivers who then become a part of the collision. The added stress of the new impact can cause additional injuries to those already injured and has the potential to injure more people.
