Several people required medical attention following a serious collision in Arizona. The car accident reportedly involved three vehicles, in which eight people were occupants. A total of five of those individuals were transported for the treatment of injuries.
On June 14, in a city a few hours northwest of Tucson, two vehicles were involved in a head-on collision. Another car was unable to avoid the wreckage and also crashed. The force of the impact caused one of the vehicles to catch on fire, which then spread to a second automobile. All drivers and passengers were successfully removed from the cars. Two people were airlifted to a hospital, while three others were transported via ambulance to two other facilities for medical attention.
One of the injured, a 31-year-old male, was reportedly the driver of one of the vehicles and is believed to be responsible for the collision. According to police, once this individual is cleared medically, he will be taken into custody. He is accused of driving under the influence.
The others injured in this car accident, in accordance with Arizona laws, may seek compensation for any damages sustained as a result of this wreck. Such damages may include any financial losses, mental anguish, and pain and suffering. Personal injury claims that are filed and managed successfully may result in compensation. Even though taking legal action may seem difficult, if negligence can be established through a thorough investigation and review of evidence, doing so may result in much-needed relief and allow the injured to focus on recovery.
