1 Injured in Wrong-Way Accident in Scottsdale
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (October 22, 2020)—A 29-year-old driver suffered minor injuries following Wednesday’s wrong-way accident on Highway Loop 101 near East Indian School Road.
According to authorities, state troopers learned about the wrong-way driver heading south in the northbound carpool lane just after midnight.
Subsequently, state troopers determined that the wrong-way vehicle collided with a coupe just less than a minute later.
At some point during the incident, the driver of the coupe traveling in the right direction swerved right in hopes to avoid the crash; however, the wrong-way driver swerved left, resulting in a collision between the two cars.
Fortunately, the driver of the coupe escaped injury but the 29-year-old man in the wrong-way vehicle suffered minor wounds.
At this time, authorities believe impairment might have contributed to the accident, but anyone with information should contact the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
