- Suspected DUI Accident Injures Two Men
A head-on collision in Tempe near Rural Road and Southern Avenue at 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning left two drivers seriously injured.
According to the Tempe Police Department, one vehicle was heading west on Southern Avenue when it crossed over the middle lane and collided with another car. Police believe that the driver was impaired at the time of the accident.
Both drivers were taken to local trauma centers after suffering serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries. A third man suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.
The names of the victims have not been released and police continue to investigate the crash to determine if charges will be filed. Lanes of traffic in the area were closed until 10 a.m. on Tuesday.
Unfortunately, the end of the year often means an increased number of DUI accidents in the area. According to the 2014 Arizona Department of Transportation car crash statistics, about 25 percent of all alcohol related accidents occur during the last three months of the year. During the same time period, 20 fatal alcohol-related accidents were reported each month.
Just one week ago, an alcohol-related accident in Avondale left two people dead. Another DUI accident in Phoenix on Nov. 12 led to a two-vehicle accident that left one man dead.

Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
