As experienced Tucson car wreck attorneys, we were overwhelmed by the news of a head-on collision that injured four people, including two toddlers, on Thursday, May 17th, 2012, as reported by Tucson News Now. The head-on collision happened when two cars traveling on Avra Valley Road near the junction with Anway Road struck each other. A 23-year-old woman and two toddlers in the first car were seriously injured and were taken to the hospital. The woman was listed in critical condition and the two children were listed in serious condition. The other driver was also transported to the hospital in serious condition. Initial reports from investigators did not divulge what caused the collision or which driver caused the accident. We are deeply concerned for all four people involved in this wreck and hope for a swift recovery for each of them.
