Statistics continue to show that some times of the day are safety to drive on Arizona roads and streets than others. Certain dangerous activities behind the wheel seem to go hand-in-hand with certain times of the day. For example, the number of drunk driving accidents that happen in the overnight hours in Phoenix is greater than the number of those collisions that happen in the afternoons.
If you take to the freeways with regularity in Phoenix, you know that rush hours can be brutal. The congestion can seem to come from nowhere and turn your drive into stop-and-go with little or no warning. Rush hours also bring motorists who are in a hurry to either get to work or get home which can lead to speeding, a factor in an estimated 50 percent of all car accidents across the country.
Most people do not have the luxury of timing their travel around things like congestion and are forced to deal with the traffic issues that arise on their trips. This puts those drivers at an increased risk of being involved in a collision, and with a collision comes the possibility of injuries. In the worst collisions, a driver or a passenger may lose their lives in a crash that is not their fault, leaving behind loved ones who will never fully recover from that loss.
While a collision may not be avoidable, the injuries that happen as a result can cause devastation and financial hardship to victims. With this in mind, the legislature in Arizona has enacted several rights that protect victims by enabling them to seek relief against an at-fault driver or another person who may be responsible for a crash. Claims can help victims obtain payment for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and permanency of injuries as well as any other harm that happened due to the crash and victims are able to retain an injury lawyer to help them get the payment that they deserve.
Now, police in Gilbert have confirmed that two people were injured on Tuesday in a collision between two vehicles. The incident happened shortly after 6:00 a.m. near the intersection of Guadalupe Road and Lindsay Road but few details about the crash have been revealed. One of the vehicles involved rolled over after the impact, trapping a female driver underneath the car and requiring emergency crews to free her before she was transported to an area hospital.
The conditions of the two victims are not known at this time and it is not clear whether either driver will be cited for his or her role in the collision.
