As experienced Laveen car wreck attorneys, we are deeply distraught at news reports on Fox 10 News of an accident involving a child on Friday, April 27th, 2012. The accident happened on Friday morning when a car travelling down 55th Avenue hit a child crossing the street at Baseline Road. The child was rushed to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the crash. Initial reports did not indicate the status of the child at the incident or after arrival at the hospital. However, reports have indicated that the vehicle that struck the child suffered serious damage to its windshield. Part of the road near the intersection was closed for several hours while police cleared the scene and investigated the crash. Our hearts are with the family of the child who was struck and we are wishing him a swift recovery. This is truly a tragic accident.
