Wrongful Death Archives

5 people killed in accident, alcohol and speeding suspected

A fatal car accident in Chandler, Arizona claimed five lives last weekend. The two vehicles involved were approaching each other when they were involved in a head-on crash. One of the vehicles had only one person in it, while the other vehicle had four people in it. The crash claimed every life -- including the person widely considered to be at fault for the crash.

Fatal wreck claims the life of Scottsdale pedestrian

A pedestrian was struck and killed in Scottsdale, Arizona last week. It is unclear if the pedestrian was in the crosswalk or not. She was in the street when a motor vehicle struck here. She was declared dead at the scene, and the driver who hit her remained there. Police do not suspect that the driver was under the influence of alcohol, nor do they believe the driver was speeding.

Fatal car accident data is tough to even read

Data goes a long way in helping us understand a certain issue, but when it comes to fatal motor vehicle accidents, that understanding comes with a vast amount of anger. In 2013, there were 30,057 motor vehicle accidents that involved fatalities in the United States. In those wrecks, 32,719 people died, which averages out to 10.3 deaths per 100,000 people in the U.S. So how does Arizona compare to these figures?

Fatal wreck between 2 vehicles being investigated

A car accident in Phoenix, Arizona claimed the life of one person, and left two others with injuries. One of the injured individuals needed to be transported to a trauma center, and was described as being in "critical" condition. The photo in our source article gives you a very clear idea of how devastating the impact was between the two cars when the collision occurred.

Train, truck collide, leaving 28 people with injuries

As many Phoenix residents have probably heard by now, a bizarre and disastrous accident between a truck and a train has left many people with injuries. That's obviously the disastrous side of this story, but the bizarre part is that the truck driver not only survived the collision but also managed to flee the scene -- before getting captured about a mile from the accident scene.

Pedestrian killed in Phoenix wreck didn't use crosswalk

A pedestrian was struck and killed in Phoenix recently as she tried to catch a bus on the other side of the street. The 56-year-old woman did not cross in the crosswalk and an oncoming vehicle hit the woman who suffered fatal injuries. The 57-year-old woman who was driving the vehicle stayed at the scene and cooperated with police. It does not appear that the driver will be charged with any crime or offense.

Fatal Phoenix wreck sparked by 'dine and dash'

As many Phoenix residents have probably heard by now, there was a tragic and completely unnecessary car accident that claimed two lives in the city a couple of weeks ago (and has since claimed a third). The wreck started because a couple tried to "dine and dash," the act of running out of a restaurant without paying your bill. When the couple fled, employees at the restaurant called the police, who chased the couple for a while before backing off.
