Six People Hospitalized in Gas Station Crash in Tempe

TEMPE, AZ — A gas station crash involving a reported red light runner, has sent six people to the hospital.  The incident took place in Tempe near Baseline and Kyrene Road on January 20th.

Reports show that a car was driving northbound on Kyrene when it failed to stop at a red light, driving into a dead end.  The car then collided with a truck parked at a gas station near the intersection.  All five passengers in the car were injured as well as the driver of the truck.  Some of the injuries may be life-threatening, officials have said.

Speed is believed to be a factor in this crash.  The investigation is ongoing.

The AZ Hometown Lawyers sends their best wishes to those injured in the crash.

Involved in an Accident?  What Next?

If you or a loved one is ever involved in a car accident, please contact our firm as soon as possible for a free legal consultation. There are two reasons why speaking to an attorney is important for your rights.  

Firstly, in Arizona, there is a time limit from the date of the accident in which you have the opportunity to make a legal claim. After this statute of limitations, you cannot file a lawsuit even if you have a valid claim. That means you must speak to an attorney, prepare parts of your case, and file a lawsuit all within a set period of time, so getting started immediately allows enough time to properly make your case. 

Secondly, any evidence, injuries, and witness testimonies are important to record as close to the actual incident as possible for accuracy and detail. Photos of the vehicle, location, and injuries will help illustrate the situation clearly, along with fresh memories from all parties involved and witnesses on the scene. Time makes these things harder to find, remember, or prove, so we recommend making an appointment to see our legal team as soon as you are able.
