On Behalf of | Mar 9, 2015 | Car Accidents

A crash occurred at Cochie Canyon Trail and Interstate 10 Frontage Road in Marana that involved three vehicles. The crash occurred in the afternoon on Feb. 28. Police continued to investigate possible causes of the accident but had not yet released anything conclusive.

The local fire department was the first to respond to the crash and rescued those injured inside the three cars. The crash involved a sedan, a pickup and an unspecified third vehicle. The two individuals in the sedan, a male driver and 63-year-old female passenger, suffered the most serious injuries. The man was airlifted to the hospital, and the woman was taken by ambulance. The two individuals in the pickup, a 39-year-old male driver and 60-year-old female passenger, were trapped in their vehicle and had to be rescued using the jaws of life. They were both taken to the hospital by ambulance as well. The two individuals in the third vehicle appeared the most fortunate. The 30-year-old male driver suffered only minor injuries, but was still taken to the hospital. A 2-year-old passenger appeared uninjured but was also taken to the hospital as a precaution.

A car collision can result in a great deal of injury and property damage. Such accidents are also more complicated when damages and negligence are assessed. A police investigation will usually examine all of the facts involved to determined which vehicle or vehicles were most responsible.

Those injured in such an accident can file a lawsuit against the negligent driver or drivers involved in order to claim compensation for injuries sustained. A successful lawsuit can provide money for medical expenses as well as compensation for lost wages. An attorney can assist a client in presenting the facts of the case in order to maximize the award of damages.
