In what seems like a photo that would be displayed in a physics class, a recent accident in Arizona has many people around the country wondering what happened. They are also wondering how nobody was hurt.

By now you have seen the photos of the white pickup truck that ended up on top of a red car. The accident happened when the white pickup truck was hit by a black truck while they were traveling down the highway. The impact sent the white truck into oncoming traffic. They driver then collided again with the black truck that hit her, and this impact caused her to flip through the air where her truck landed on top of the red car. Both vehicles were significantly damaged, but miraculously, four people walked away unscathed. The driver of the truck who started this chain of events fled the scene.

While we are grateful that nobody was hurt, at Lorona Law, we know that is not always the case. If you need a Phoenix car accident attorney, you can turn to our knowledgeable and experienced team for help.

Out of those, alcohol-related crashes accounted for 320 deaths and over 3,000 injuries in the state. Impaired drivers are dangerous. Those who make the choice to get behind the wheel after drinking or doing drugs post a danger to everyone on or around the roadway near them.

More and more, distracted drivers are a problem on the roadway. How many times have you been driving and seen a driver near you looking down at their phone screens instead of the roadway? This is dangerous. The YouTube video or text message from a friend can wait until the trip is over.

Injuries from car accidents can range from minor to severe. They have the potential to be life changing. Medical expenses from vehicle accidents pile up quickly and can leave people unable to pay their bills, especially if they are unable to work due to their injuries.
