As experienced Arizona car crash attorneys, we were shocked by news reports on My Radio Place of an accident that sent three people to the hospital on Thursday, April 26th, 2012. Around 3:30 p.m., a pickup truck travelling on Main Street was rear-ended by another pickup truck. Initial reports indicate that speed may have been a factor in the collision. Three people were hurt in the accident and had to be stabilized at the scene with medical neck braces and backboards. All three injured parties were transported by ambulance to the local medical center. We hope that all three people who were hurt in this crash will recover quickly, and our thoughts are with them and their families at this time.
