HomeBlogMaricopa, AZ – Injury Collision Involving USPS Delivery Truck Closes Down Smith-Enke Rd

Maricopa, AZ (July 28, 2022) – A collision involving multiple vehicles, one of which was a U.S. Postal Service delivery truck, led to the closure of Smith-Enke Road on Thursday, July 28th.

The incident took place at about 12:00 p.m. between North Santa Rosa Drive and North Desert Greens Drive, in the area of Province Parkway. 

The westbound lanes were closed for roughly three hours as the Maricopa Police Department and other law enforcement agencies investigated the three-car crash that involved a postal truck.

Officials determined that one of the vehicles involved was heading eastbound when the driver drifted over the median into oncoming traffic, crashing into the mail truck and one other vehicle. 

All three drivers were transported by ambulance to Exceptional Healthcare in Maricopa for treatment of non-critical injuries. 

The names of the drivers have not been released. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Arizona

Like most other states in America, Arizona abides by standard fault laws where car crashes are concerned. This means that your Phoenix car accident attorney will have to prove fault before you will be able to file your claim. Liability for an accident can lie with one or even several parties depending on the cause.

Establishing the specific cause of your car accident is absolutely vital if you intend on filing an insurance claim for a car accident in Arizona. 

Motor vehicle collisions take place for a wide variety of reasons. Outside influences, such as rough weather, often cause driving conditions to become perilous, and result in a driver losing control of their car. In many instances, at its core, a vehicle crash is really caused by the malicious, reckless, or negligent behavior of another motorist.  

Taking into consideration the numerous modern technological advancements at our disposal such as car stereos with remote controls, cellular phones, and satellite navigation systems, there are more things to pull our focus off of the roadway than ever before. This means that drivers are paying less attention to their surroundings than ever before. 

Inattentive driving, along with other types of careless driver behavior, also results in motorists disregarding fundamental driving regulations and laws, causing them to blow through stoplights, drive dangerously fast, and even hit pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles. 

These distractions, combined with human error and basic negligence, have caused an increase in Arizona’s annual number of vehicle accidents and an increase in the number and severity of injuries they cause.
