Three People Seriously Injured in Phoenix Car Accident
Every aspect of driving a vehicle on public roads involves risk, even sitting at an intersection waiting for a light to change. The fact is that all of us depend on other motorists to avoid serious mistakes that lead to severe injuries or worse. Unfortunately, two people paid a heavy price for what apparently was a mistake made by another driver yesterday when a Phoenix car accident seriously injured three people. Police are investigating the matter, but speed is suspected to be the main factor in the crash.
According to police, the latest Phoenix car accident occurred yesterday afternoon at a red light at 32nd Street and Broadway Road. Two people were sitting at a stop light waiting for it to change when an unidentified driver who was allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed approached from behind them and smashed into them in a rear-end collision. The vehicle that was hit burst into flames, and three people were transported to a nearby hospital with what were described as serious injuries.
