- Australian Man Killed in Gruesome Phoenix Pedestrian Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Arizona welcomes tourists from all over the world every year. The state is home to many attractions, and its proximity to these attractions always keeps people coming. Unfortunately, not every visitor to the state leaves unscathed. Tragically, an Australian man paid the ultimate price for a mistake made by a driver last night as he was hit and immediately killed in a Phoenix pedestrian accident. The scene as described by police was nothing short of horrifying, and the man who was driving in the accident claims to have suffered from a medical condition.
According to police, the latest fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident occurred last night at approximately 9 p.m. last night as the Diamondbacks game was ending. The person who was killed, a 29-year-old man of Australia, was crossing Camelback Avenue near the intersection with 7th Avenue on his way back to his hotel. The victim was in the country with a tour group of about 50 people. Suddenly a driver moving at an estimated 90 miles per hour in an SUV came speeding through the crosswalk and hit the victim. The SUV never hit the brakes, and continued on to hit other vehicles and a fence before coming to rest and bursting into flames. The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries.
Arizona Pedestrian Accident Statistics
First, we’d like to extend our condolences to the family of the victim. This is the sort of news from far away that no one should ever have to receive, and we hope that the family is able to somehow overcome the grief and sorrow that will certainly follow. In addition, this Phoenix pedestrian accident will also only add to the statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents overall. Every year, more than 1,500 Arizona pedestrian accidents occur, leading to nearly as many injuries and more than 150 fatalities.

My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .

Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
