As experienced Phoenix collision attorneys, we were deeply distraught to hear the news of an accident that injured nearly half a dozen people on Friday, April 27th, 2012, according to reports by CBS News 5. The car wreck occurred late Friday night and happened on 23rd Avenue near where the street intersects with Greenway. According to reports by the police, three people were thrown from one vehicle into a tree and all three sustained serious injuries. Two other people were also hurt in the collision, though it is unknown whether those people were in the same vehicle or in another one. Police have not indicated whether this was a single vehicle accident or if multiple cars were involved in the wreck. All five people who were hurt were rushed to a nearby hospital to receive emergency medical treatment. Authorities have not commented on whether any of the injured parties were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash or whether alcohol may have played a role. We are thinking of those involved in the collision and hope that they will all heal quickly.
