Three People Injured in Glendale Car Accident
When we learn to drive, we are taught to approach the task defensively so that we can be prepared for any potential mistakes that other motorists may commit and avoid the danger that results. While most of us have learned this skill over time, there are few drivers who would ever be prepared to evade a motorist who makes sudden movements into their lane of oncoming traffic. Apparently, this is what occurred yesterday when an Arizona car accident on the Loop 101 in Glendale seriously injured three people.
According to police, this latest Phoenix car accident occurred just before 1 p.m. yesterday on the Loop 101 in Glendale near 67th Avenue. The driver of a Volkswagen swerved suddenly and moved through the median and into oncoming traffic after a failed attempt to make a sudden left turn. As a result, the Volkswagen crashed into a Nissan. Both occupants of the Volkswagen and the man driving the Nissan were all seriously injured and were rushed to a nearby hospital.
