As experienced Tucson traffic accident attorneys, we were taken aback by news of a crash that happened Thursday, May 24, 2012, according to reports by the Tucson Police Department. The collision took place on northbound Park Avenue and eastbound Glenn Street during rush hour on Thursday afternoon when two vehicles collided. Initial reports from police did not provide an explanation for the crash, and it is unclear whether the crash was caused by a rear-end collision or a failure to yield based on reports from crash scene investigators. At least one person reported serious injuries in the car crash, but police did not indicate the number of injuries that were sustained in the collision and the extent of the injuries that were suffered. We are thinking about the people in this crash and we wish everyone that was injured in the impact a speedy recovery.
