A serious crash involving multiple vehicles on 10th Avenue and Congress Avenue has shut down commuting traffic in Palm Springs.
According to Palm Springs Police, some children were involved in the 10th Avenue Crash crash. They suffered varying degrees of injuries –ranging from major to minor – and have been transported to St. Mary’s Hospital.
Mangled metals from the wreck littered the road. The driver of one of the vehicles was trapped and had to be removed from the vehicle by emergency personnel using extricating tools. The driver was taken to a nearby hospital but his condition is unknown at this time.
Authorities are investigating the cause of the accident and are working to clean up the wreck. According to a few witnesses, a vehicle crashed into several parked vehicles, causing a loud bang that woke some residents up. No word yet on what led to the crash according to the police.
10th Avenue North from Congress Avenue to around Rudolph Road will remain closed until authorities are able to clear the wreck. Vehicles on this route are pulling to the roadside to allow crews work. Some are pulling into nearby side streets. The delay of traffic on this route is due to the severity of the crash. It is best to use an alternative route. Please drive with caution and stay safe.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving several vehicles, which ultimately, resulted in an adult and some children suffering extensive auto crash injuries. We wish the victims a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
