One Dead Following Scottsdale Street Racing Crash
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Officials with the Scottsdale Police Department have reported a single fatality following a high-speed street racing collision that took place Saturday evening. Another driver involved has been taken into custody.
According to 12 News, 21-year-old Nicholas Meath and 27-year-old Cameron Groom were spotted around 6:30 p.m., racing each other at speeds estimated at 120 mph or more in a 45 mph stretch of Scottsdale Road.
Witnesses at the scene said Meath swerved to avoid a vehicle pulling out of a driveway when he hit a curb, launching his vehicle into the air before striking a pillar in front of the Scottsdale Plaza Hotel. The force of the impact caused the car to break apart, raining debris down on people, including children, who were standing nearby.
Meath was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash. Groom was arrested and charged with manslaughter and endangerment. His bail has been set at $450,000.

I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
