- Arrest Made in Fatal Flagstaff Rollover Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Drivers owe a legal duty of care to their passengers, which means that they are supposed to avoid placing these passengers in situations of unreasonable harm. In addition, when harm does befall a passenger, Arizona law dictates that those who were involved in an Arizona car accident remain on the scene to provide aid and information as necessary. When a driver flees the scene of a single-vehicle accident, the situation becomes a criminal investigation. Such was the case with a recent Flagstaff rollover accident, but fortunately the driver involved in the crash has been identified and arrested.
According to authorities, the fatal Flagstaff rollover accident in question occurred in the early hours of last Saturday near Kaibab Estates West. For unknown reasons, 32-year-old Ramon Ramiro Vasquez Gonzalez lost control of his vehicle and it rolled over. As a result of the crash, 41-year-old Jose Manuel Vasquez of Ashfork was killed. Witnesses saw the driver flee on foot after the crash, and he ultimately turned himself in. He was arrested on suspicion of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
