Five People Injured in Phoenix Car Accident
Most drivers make a mistake from time to time behind the wheel. Fortunately, many of these mistakes do not lead to serious problems. Unfortunately, we are sometimes reminded that such a mistake can lead to a disaster, as it apparently did over the weekend when five people were injured in a Phoenix car accident that began when a motorist ran through a red light. No update was given on the condition of those who were harmed, but the aftermath of the collision was shocking for anyone who saw it.
The latest Phoenix car accident occurred just before 8 a.m. yesterday morning when the driver of a white pickup truck ran through a red light on the northbound Interstate 17 frontage at Buckeye Road. As a result of this mistake, the white pickup truck hit a gold pickup, causing the gold pickup to roll over and smash into a black pickup truck. As this was happening, the tailgate from the gold pickup truck came loose and crashed into the windshield of a minivan. Fortunately, no one has been killed as a result of this chain reaction crash.

If those who are injured choose to file an Arizona personal injury lawsuit as a result of this Phoenix car accident, they could be awarded damages that compensate them for their medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering if those claims are filed and are successful.
