Three People Injured in Four-Vehicle Arizona Car Accident
When an Arizona car accident occurs, it can lead to serious damage, injuries and fatalities. When such a crash leads to a chain reaction that involves other vehicles, the situation can devolve into a complete disaster. While it's still too early to know exactly how a four-vehicle Arizona car accident will turn out in terms of injuries or worse, what is known is that three people were rushed to hospitals after a short series of crashes on a relatively rural stretch of highway. Police are continuing to investigate the situation.
According to police, this four-vehicle Arizona car accident occurred on Friday on Highway 95 near Valencia Road in Fort Mohave. The incident began when two compact vehicles moving in opposite directions collided with each other head-on. Shortly after that initial impact, two other mid-sized vehicles that were moving in a southbound direction collided with the existing wreckage. As a result of all of this, three people were sent to hospitals, and two of them were flown to a medical center in Las Vegas. None of the names of those involved in this crash have been released at this point.
