In two separate car accidents -- occurring in the same area just minutes apart -- four individuals were injured. In one car crash, both the driver and the pedestrian refused transportation to the hospital. In the other incident, both drivers were taken to a medical facility for treatment. The cause of each collision is still under investigation by Arizona authorities.
At about 4:30 p.m., on Wednesday March 30, a truck crashed into the Circle K located at Ina Road, near the I-10, in Tucson. Video footage of the incident shows a customer at the cash register being grazed by the side of the vehicle. The driver of the pickup truck and the customer were both evaluated at the scene of the accident. Both refused medical transport. It is unknown if the victim has since sought medical care.
Another accident occurred at around the same time just outside the store. Two vehicles collided. The cause of the crash is still unknown. One of the drivers had to be extricated from her vehicle. Both drivers were transported to a nearby hospital in stable condition.
When a car crash results in injuries, even injuries that may only seem minor at the time, the driver believed responsible may face claims for any damages a victim sustains. Legal claims may be filed in an Arizona civil court in an effort to recoup any losses one has incurred. Negligence will have to be established in court for such a claim to be successful. If this can be done, the victim may be granted monetary relief which could certainly prove helpful during the recovery process.
