Wrong-Way Driver Causes Four-Vehicle Arizona Car Accident
People who have several years of experience behind the wheel of a vehicle tend to acquire the ability to anticipate mistakes that other motorists will make from time to time and avoid the problems that can arise when something goes wrong. However, few if any people could or would ever anticipate seeing a vehicle coming directly at them at a high rate of speed and going the wrong way down a road. Such was the case with an Arizona car accident that occurred this morning that left several people injured.
According to authorities, the latest multiple-vehicle Arizona car accident occurred at approximately 7 a.m. this morning on Grand Avenue near Loop 303 in Phoenix. A 17-year-old driver was headed down Grand Avenue in a Ford SUV when he suddenly veered into the westbound lanes of the road. He clipped two vehicles on the side before colliding head-on with a Buick sedan. The 17-year-old driver and three other people were injured in varying degrees. None of the people involved in the crash were identified.
