As Phoenix car accident attorneys, we’re alarmed at the recent string of serious multi-vehicle collisions that have occurred in the greater Phoenix area, including a crash that happened Thursday, March 22, 2012, according to Arizona Central. The crash took place near the crossing between 32nd Street and Baseline Road before 7a.m. when three vehicles collided. One of the vehicles flipped over onto its side as a result of the impact. At least one person was injured and was taken to the hospital to be examined for neck and ankle pain. Police are still investigating the crash, and no official report on the cause of the collision has been issued.
Phoenix Car Accident with Injuries Statistics
Each day, a Phoenix car accident comes across the police radio approximately 80 times, according to reports by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). This amounts to nearly 29, 100 collisions each year. Reports indicate that approximately 9,700 of the collisions that occur in Phoenix every year result in severe injuries to more than 15,000 people. The most common cause of collisions, especially multi-vehicle collisions, throughout Arizona is following another driver too closely, which results in hundreds of rear-end car crashes each day. Drivers can avoid the dangers of a multi-vehicle collision by driving at an appropriate speed for conditions in the weather and on the road, and also by leaving plenty of space between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them. When drivers follow too closely, accidents like this one and others occur and hurt innocent individuals.
