Four-Vehicle Cottonwood Car Accident Leads to Three Serious Injuries
When Arizona car accidents occur amidst relatively heavy traffic conditions, the situation can quickly spiral out of control and lead to disaster. Unfortunately, that appears to be what occurred yesterday when four vehicles were involved in a Cottonwood car accident that seriously injured at least three people. The crash seems to have been a chain-reaction incident in which vehicles not involved in the initial collision were hit. Police are still investigating the situation and have not released the names of those involved.
According to authorities, this multi-vehicle Cottonwood car accident occurred yesterday at approximately 5:30 p.m. on State Route 260 between Godard Road and Del Rio Drive. Witnesses have stated that the driver of a white van drifted into the opposite lane of oncoming traffic and struck an SUV moving in the opposite direction. The SUV then spun out of control and struck two other vehicles. Rescue workers quickly arrived on the scene and extricated the injured parties. They were transported to nearby hospitals.
