Multi-car accident injures four

Arizona residents should be interested to know that a four car accident that occurred in Queen Creek has injured at least five people. According to a spokesperson with the County Sheriff's office the accident occurred in the early afternoon at around 2 p.m.

Initially, according to a police officer at the scene of the accident that was familiar with the details of what happened, the four-car pile-up started when the driver of a white minivan slammed into a silver four-door sedan. The silver sedan was attempting to negotiate a left turn when the minivan rear ended it. The force of the impact was strong enough that it propelled the silver sedan clear across the centerline and into the path of oncoming traffic. The driver of the silver sedan collided with a silver SUV.

According to people who live and work in the area where the accident took place, the layout of that stretch of road is apparently dangerous and poses a safety risk. According to one witness, the road where the accident occurred is a two-lane road that does not have a turn lane and is a main thoroughfare.

The multi car accident that occurred on this thoroughfare is still under investigation and the nature of the injuries sustained by the car accident victims is unknown. But, according to a couple of witnesses, one of the vehicles caught fire and at least one car accident victim was trapped inside as they attempted to pull him out of the burning car.

Depending on the severity of a car accident, those involved can sustain head, spine, back and neck injuries and, as the case above illustrates, may also sustain burn injuries. Car accident victims or their family may want to consult with a personal injury law firm to determine if filing a lawsuit is appropriate.
