A car accident in Phoenix, Arizona left four people with injuries, an SUV on its roof and investigators combing the scene for evidence. The two vehicles collided last Friday morning and three people, including a 2-year-old child, required hospitalization because of the injuries they sustained in the car accident.
When a car that is traveling at a normal rate of speed collides with a car that is stationary, the results can be devastating. The amount of force that is created can make escaping such a crash without injury almost impossible -- for either the moving car or the one that was not moving. If a driver is going speeds that are well above average, however, the devastation can reach another level.
Another day, and yet another fatal car accident has occurred under tragic and upsetting circumstances. To be fair, every fatal car accident is tragic and upsetting -- but this wreck certainly ups the ante from other "average" fatal car accidents.
Two vehicles were involved in a car accident north of Phoenix recently. The accident occurred in Camp Verde, Arizona, leaving one person with injuries that required hospitalization. The wreck involved a pickup truck and a minivan. The vehicles were traveling in opposite directions, but the pickup truck suddenly lost control and drifted into the minivan's lane. The minivan was sideswiped, and the driver had to be taken to the hospital.
An accident in Phoenix involved five vehicles, left a police officer injured and another person with life-threatening injuries after being tossed from a motorcycle. The massive wreck began when the police officer tried to pull over a vehicle. As that vehicle made its way to the emergency lane, a truck hauling a camper collided with the police car, eventually rolling up with the pulled-over vehicle.
Two vehicles collided at a Phoenix intersection recently, eventually sliding into a fire truck to complete the three-car wreck. The fire truck sustained quite a bit of damage, and numerous firefighters suffered injuries -- though the injuries were minor in nature.
It appears that an U-turn is involved in another fatal car accident in Arizona, this time in Tucson. As you'll recall from last week, we wrote a post about a driver who was killed after he made a seemingly-illegal U-turn. Now one person is dead and two others are injured after a 32-year-old man attempted a U-turn with his car. His vehicle was struck by an SUV being driven by a 47-year-old woman.
An accident involving three vehicles in Phoenix left two people with serious injuries and three others with injuries that were deemed "less than serious." Airlifts were required to take the seriously injured to the hospital
We've all heard the cute monikers that people throw around when they, or someone they know, are drunk. You can get a "buzz" going; sometimes people get "hammered"; and, of course, people may get "wasted" from time to time. What all of these names veil is a simple truth: the person is intoxicated, and probably to the point where they are beyond the legal limit. Getting behind the wheel of a car when you are "buzzed" or "hammered" or "wasted" is negligent and stupid. You put yourself and others at extreme risk of injury, or worse.
A car accident at an intersection in Mesa, Arizona left one person injured and many wondering what exactly happened.
