A vehicle ploughed into several others at a major intersection in Parker, AZ Thursday morning, according to Parker Police Department.
The vehicle was doing a high rate of speed when it collided with other vehicles at around 11 a.m. at the intersection of Riverside Drive and California Avenue. 5 other vehicles were involved in the incident, with 3 sustaining heavy damage and the other 2 sustaining moderate damage.
“The driver was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at the intersection,” said Parker Police Department’s Michael Bailey. “The only people who had significant injuries were in the vehicle that caused the collision. Nobody else accepted medical attention at the scene.”
The driver was reportedly taken to hospital, and the Colorado River Indian Tribes Police Department will be handling the investigation.
PPD, CRIT PD, La Paz County Sheriff’s Department and the Arizona Department of Public Safety were among the agencies who responded to the incident, which left traffic backed up and detours along surface streets on a busy winter midday for almost 2 hours as the scene was processed by law enforcement and debris was cleared.
