Last Thursday in Coolidge, Arizona, two individuals had to be airlifted to the hospital for the injuries they sustained as the result of a car accident involving two vehicles.
Collidge Police Department spokesman, Officer David Kerzie, stated:
"There was a Kia Sonata traveling southbound on Arizona Boulevard in the number two lane [closest to curb] traveling at about 35 mph, when a white Chevrolet Impala pulled out of the parking lot between McDonald's and Autozone."
Kerzie said that while exiting the parking lot, the driver of the Impala failed to yield the right of way to the Sonata, colliding with the rear passenger side bumper. Kerzie explained:
"This caused the Hyundai to fishtail a bit and then struck the light pole and then struck the sign for the plaza right there."
Of the two individuals from the Sonata having to be airlifted to the hospital, Kerzie stated:
"As far as what we were looking at on scene and what I gathered from EMS and firefighters and such, it's more of a precautionary thing...The driver of the vehicle had a good head laceration."
The two accident members from the Impala were apparently uninjured in the car wreck.
Kerzie revealed that driver of the Impala was cited for failing to yield the right-of-way while exiting a private drive.
This would have certainly been a scary accident to have been involved in, but as an Arizona car accident attorney, you learn that in every moment on the road, there is the potential for injury and accidents.
Luckily, it looks like the two who were airlifted for their injuries were done so as a precaution, one reportedly having suffered a head injury.
