Phoenix, AZ (November 1, 2023) – On Tuesday morning, October 31, troopers with the Arizona Department of Public Safety were called to the scene of an automobile accident that took place in the Sun Lakes neighborhood.
The crash occurred at around 7:30 a.m.
Reports provided by the Arizona Department of Transportation show that a commercial truck was traveling on the westbound side of Interstate 10 during the morning hours. For unknown reasons, the truck driver failed to stop and crashed into multiple other vehicles near Riggs Road. The truck driver fled the scene of the crash.
Authorities arrived at the scene and located at least three vehicles blocking multiple lanes of the road. Several victims were injured in the crash. Medics were called to care for the injured victims while on site. Those who required further medical care were transported to local hospitals.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety is actively investigating.
Our thoughts are with those injured as a result of this crash.
Truck accidents are the cause of countless injuries in Arizona every year. Far too often, these accidents are a result of negligence. We see many people suffer from devastating injuries due to drivers who fail to yield, pass stop signs, run red lights, or engage in other careless actions. Unfortunately, when drivers do not operate their vehicles safely, it can have life-changing consequences for everyone nearby.
There are countless instances where people are hospitalized with severe trauma to the head, internal organ injuries, broken bones, and other serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Many injuries can require extensive medical care. Victims often had to spend several weeks to months off work to recover. They often had to go through surgery, long-term therapy and rehabilitation, and more.
To help ease some of the stress and financial strains, injured parties have the right to pursue personal injury claims for compensation against the responsible drivers. If you have been hurt as a result of a truck crash, a personal injury claim can help you get money for medical costs, lost wages, and more. Having a dedicated commercial vehicle accident lawyer by your side can make all of the difference when it comes to your ability to get the maximum possible compensation.
