Arizona Car Accident Leaves One Dead, Two Injured
Most people understand that traveling at the beginning and at the end of a holiday weekend such as Thanksgiving can be extremely dangerous given the high number of vehicles on the road, the speeds that can be involved and the urgency that motorists feel to complete their journeys. Tragically, the holiday weekend got off to a bad start in the state when one person was killed and two others were injured in an Arizona car accident that has police investigating its cause.
According to authorities, the latest fatal Arizona car accident occurred on Wednesday night at 8 p.m. on Interstate 10 near Watson Road west of Phoenix. The crash involved two vehicles that collided with each other, and one person was thrown from one of the vehicles as a result of the impact. That person was declared dead at the scene. Two other people were rushed to a nearby hospital with injuries and conditions that were not specified. None of the names of those involved were released at this point pending notification of the families.
