Phoenix, AZ (April 28, 2022) – Multiple people were injured on Thursday, April 28th when a car crashed into a gas pump outside a Circle K in Phoenix.
Officials said the crash took place at about 11:00 a.m. in the area of Dobbins Road and Central Avenue when a car heading westbound on Dobbins Road swerved to circumvent a collision with another car on Central Avenue.
The vehicle then jumped a curb and crashed into the gas pumps outside Circle K.
The two women and 6-year-old boy who were inside the vehicle were taken to a nearby hospital in non-critical condition.
A man who was near the gas pumps at the time of the accident was also injured when he was hit by a tire that dislodged from the vehicle. He was also taken to the hospital.
According to police, the vehicle was allegedly involved in another crash near 3rd Street. The driver fled the scene before crashing into the Circle K gas pump.
Impairment is believed to be a factor in both collisions.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Passenger Injuries in Arizona
In almost all car accidents, determining the at-fault driver is of paramount importance. When a passenger is injured, however, the overwhelming probability is that the fault lies with the driver of their vehicle, the driver of the other vehicle, or some outside condition over which a passenger has absolutely no control and for which they have no legal responsibility.
Due to this, passengers normally have no liability in an accident. The important question for them is which person and/or insurance carrier is responsible for their damages, including hospital and medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other losses as well.
As an injured passenger, a car insurance company is sure to play a part in recovering financial compensation for their losses. The rules surrounding these types of accidents are complicated, so victims should speak with an attorney as soon as possible after being injured as a passenger in a car accident.
