On Saturday morning, Phoenix Police Department authorities shut down both sides of Thunderbird Road, between 41st Ave. and 43rd Ave, after a violent multi-car accident sent three to the hospital.
Lt. Scott Sowerwine, spokesman for Phoenix police, stated that the crash occured at around 10 a.m., near Thunderbird Road and 43rd Avenue. Apparently, two vehicles that were going eastbound on Thunderbird Road were smashed into by a red pickup truck, after the westbound truck crossed the middle line and veered into the eastbound side of oncoming traffic.
Spokesman for Phoenix Fire Department, Captain Scott McDonald, revealed that there were seven people involved in the accident in total. The driver who was operating the pickup truck at the time of the accident was rushed to the hospital in what has been described as extremely critical condition. Another woman and a child were taken to the hospital for their injuries and are said to be in stable condition.
The other four members of the crash group were evaluated by firefighters at the scene and were released after it was determined that the injuries they suffered were minor enough to skip a trip to the emergency room if they wished.
Lt. Sowerwine concluded that it was still too early to tell whether speed or impairment were contributing factors in this instance.
