- Arrest Made in Phoenix Hit-and-Run Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
When Arizona hit-and-run accidents occur, they often lead to extensive investigations that can take weeks or even months to complete. Tragically, a Phoenix hit-and-run accident occurred over the weekend, but at least it can be said that witnesses helped police track the driver involved in the crash so that he could be apprehended and arrested quickly. Unfortunately, that doesn’t change the result that a woman was killed in a violent Phoenix car accident that will clearly lead to serious criminal charges.
According to the authorities, this Phoenix car accident occurred on Sunday at 12:15 p.m. when 54-year-old Sherri Lin May was driving her BMW in a westbound direction on Indian School Road when she was hit by the driver of a Toyota Corolla who had been traveling in a northbound direction on 16th Street. The Toyota was reportedly moving at a high rate of speed and could have run through a red light, and after the crash the unidentified driver attempted to flee on foot. As stated above, he was apprehended, but Ms. May died in surgery after being rushed to a nearby hospital.
Arizona Car Accident Statistics
While we are glad that the driver involved in this alleged Phoenix hit-and-run accident was not able to escape, we would still like to offer our condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed. This loss is a true tragedy that could have been avoided. In addition, this Phoenix car accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year, more than 65,000 people are injured and more than 1,000 people are killed in these occurrences.
Phoenix Wrongful Death Lawyers
Clearly, the man involved in this Phoenix hit-and-run accident will face serious criminal charges. However, he could also face an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit if the family of the woman who was killed decides to initiate such a filing. If a case is filed and it’s successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their lost income and their loss of companionship.
If you have lost someone you love in a crash, you need to seek the help of Phoenix wrongful death lawyers who have been holding those responsible for these tragic losses accountable for many years. Contact the Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
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.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
