As experienced Tucson car accident attorneys, we know that not all crashes are avoidable but were still upset by news of a serious collision that took place on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, as reported by the Tucson Police Department. The wreck happened just before 8 a.m. during the morning rush when at least two cars crashed into each other at the intersection of Pantano Parkway and Sleepy Hollow Avenue. Police reported that at least one individual involved in the collision sustained injuries, but did not report on the total number of injury victims or the extent of the injuries that were sustained. Investigators are still looking into the cause of the crash, and police have not issued any updates on the drivers or their passengers. We are deeply concerned for the people who sustained physical injuries in this car wreck and look forward to their swift recoveries.
