As experienced Prescott intersection accident attorneys, we were shocked to hear news of a crash caused by a driver that ran a red light on Thursday, June 7, 2012, according to My Radio Place. The accident happened at the intersection of Lee Boulevard and Highway 69 when a vehicle ran the red light and crashed into another car that was making a left hand turn. Reports did not indicate how the third vehicle became involved in the accident. Multiple injuries were reported in the collision. The drivers of all three vehicles involved reported only minor injuries, and police have not released additional details about the other reported injuries. A police spokesperson indicated that the driver who ran the red light would most likely be issued a citation for the violation and for causing the accident. We are thinking of everyone involved in the collision and hope that everyone gets well soon.
