- El Mirage Rollover Accident Kills Two
February 23, 2016
A one-vehicle rollover accident claimed the lives of two Arizona residents early yesterday morning in the Phoenix suburb of El Mirage.
Local law enforcement officials have determined the victims were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
While the outcome of the crime scene investigation is still pending, it is believed that speeding and careless driving may have played a role in the accident.
Currently Known Crash Details
At approximately 2:15 a.m. Monday morning, near the intersection of Greenway Road and Grand Avenue, the driver of an SUV lost control while attempting to make a left turn.
Shortly thereafter, El Mirage police were called to the scene of the accident, where they found the vehicle’s two occupants lying deceased alongside the roadway.
The driver and passenger were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash and were ejected from the vehicle once it began to roll.
Police say the victims would likely have survived the accident if they had been wearing their seat belts.
The identities of the victims have not been released, as their family members have yet to be notified of their passing.
Seat Belts Save Lives
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, car accidents are the leading cause of death among U.S. residents between the ages of five and 35.
The most reliable method of preventing death from a car crash is to wear a seat belt.
However, millions of drivers and passengers choose not to wear their seat belt when inside a moving vehicle. Because of this choice, nearly 60 percent of all unrestrained motorists die in collisions that would not have been deadly otherwise.
In fact, according to research conducted by the Naval Safety Center, only one percent of motorists who were wearing their seat belt at the time of a car crash were ejected from their vehicle.
The remaining 99 percent of occupants who were unrestrained were ejected from a vehicle during a crash. Many died as a result of the injuries they received.
Statistics prove that, regardless of the type of accident you are involved in, wearing your seat belt can reduce your chances of dying by more than 50 percent.
Don’t make police officers have to notify your family of your death following a car accident. Wear your seat belt every time you get inside a vehicle.
No matter if you are the driver or the passenger, if the car trip is lengthy or short, or if you have had your license for several years or several days, always wear your seat belt. Doing so can save your life.

Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
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.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
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.
