At Least One Person Injured in Phoenix Car Accident
Driving in Phoenix during rush hour involves elements of risk, regardless of how defensively someone may drive in general. A large number of people are on the roads and many are in a hurry to get to their destination. These elements can combine to make intersections very dangerous driving environments. While it's too early to know the specifics, an intersection was once again the scene of a Phoenix car accident that occurred during the morning commute this morning, and at least one person was injured as a result of the crash.
According to authorities, this Phoenix car accident occurred at approximately 7 a.m. near 27th Avenue and Glendale Avenue. A truck and a white van collided at that point in a violent fashion, and debris was scattered for dozens of feet in every direction after the initial impact. Neither of the drivers was identified in the crash, but at least one person was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police have yet to identify the specific cause of this accident, but their investigation is continuing.
