Five-Vehicle Mesa Car Accident Injures at Least Two People
Freeways are traffic environments that seem relatively safe and normal to those who travel on them every day. The fact of the matter is that these driving environments are extremely dangerous, as a mistake that's made by even one motorist can lead to instant disaster. While it's too early to know specifically what caused a five-vehicle Mesa car accident yesterday, several people were injured and authorities indicated that it would take some time to begin to piece together what happened.
According to authorities, this five-vehicle Phoenix car accident occurred on U.S. 60 in the westbound lanes at Extension Road in Mesa yesterday. The pile-up completely blocked the road and forced commuters to take alternate routes while rescue workers and police attempted to clear the scene. In addition, at least two people had to be freed from their mangled vehicles by those rescue workers, and while there was no word on how many injuries were inflicted, at least two people were rushed to a nearby hospital. None of the names of those involved were released to the public.
