As experienced Yuma car crash attorneys, we are very much concerned for those who were hurt in a multi-vehicle accident reported by KSWT News on Thursday, April 26th, 2012. A truck was travelling on 32nd Street between 15th Avenue and Avenue A when it struck a Jeep from behind. The Jeep then jumped forward and struck a taxicab. Three people were hurt in the crash and all of them were transported by ambulance to a local hospital to be treated for injuries they sustained in the accident. Initial reports did not indicate the severity of the injuries the victims suffered. Police initially shut down parts of 32nd Street in order to allow for investigation and cleanup of the accident. Our thoughts are with the people who were hurt during the collision and we hope that everyone is okay.
Yuma Car Crash Statistics
A Yuma car crash happens every four hours, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). But a crash like this one is not very common. Of the nearly 1,900 car accidents that are reported within the city limits each year, approximately 620, or slightly less than one-third, result in injuries. For those accidents that do cause injuries, approximately every other crash results in injury to two people, but statistics show that there are rarely crashes in this city that result in injuries to three or more people at a time.
