Multi-car crash near the Grand Canyon injures nine

The scenic splendor of the Grand Canyon brings visitors to Arizona throughout the year. With tourism comes the possibility of accidents on the roads leading up to scenic points. Because of this, drivers may have to navigate tour buses and other hazards. An example of this notion was seen in a recent accident involving five vehicles.

The accident reportedly occurred near the Grand Canyon National Park. According to an azcentral.com report, the crash occurred yesterday around 2:00 p.m. near East Rim Drive and the Pipe Creek Overlook. Details of the accident are still being developed, but it appears that the vehicles involved include a mini-van, a sedan and a 20 person tour bus. Two other parked cars were damaged in the crash.

Authorities report that eight people were injured and taken to a local hospital. Also another person who was airlifted to a medical center in Flagstaff to deal with other injuries.

The accident brings with it a number of questions regarding liability. Basically, an investigation would be needed to determine who would actually be responsible for the crash. Regardless of liability, the principles of personal injury law hold true.

Drivers in Arizona have a duty to use reasonable care while behind the wheel. If they breach this duty, either by using a cell phone while driving, being under the influence of alcohol or medication while driving, or not paying attention to the road ahead, they could be held liable if the breach is found to be the proximate cause of an accident.
