Motorcyclist Killed After Collision With Pickup Truck
July 6, 2021
TUCSON, AZ – A motorcyclist was killed after colliding with a pickup truck on Tucson’s east side late Sunday night.
According to KOLD, 57-year-old Derek Bruce Post crashed into the pickup at about 10:27 p.m., as the truck was making a left turn from Kolb Road to Kenyon Drive.
Despite life-saving measures taken by Tucson firefighters, Post was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup was unhurt.
Investigators say the cause of the crash was a combination of failure to yield by the pickup and excessive speed by the motorcyclist. It is unclear if any charges will be filed at this time.

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.
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!!
