When passengers and drivers are ejected from vehicles during a Phoenix car crash, serious injuries almost always result in injuries, like a serious collision reported by KPHO News on September 2.

All four individuals riding in the vehicle were ejected during the rollover and officials did not report whether any of those involved were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision. All four people were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Two were flown by helicopter and two were taken by ambulance. We are deeply concerned for the physical status of those who were involved in this accident and wish each of them a quick recovery.

As experienced Arizona rollover accident attorneys, we were shaken by news of a rollover collision that injured four people on Friday, June 8, 2012, according to reports by Green Valley News.
