As experienced Gila River car accident attorneys, we are deeply concerned for the condition of those involved in a serious crash on Friday, June 22, 2012, based on reports from KPHO News. The collision took place early Friday afternoon when two cars collided on I-10 near the exit for Pinal Avenue. Eastbound I-10 was closed for several hours while police investigated the scene and emergency crews cleared away the wreckage. Reports have indicated that multiple ambulances arrived on the scene and removed injured individuals, but police have not confirmed the number of persons hurt or the degree to which they suffered injuries.
