One Dead Following Scottsdale Street Racing Crash
November 17, 2020
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.

That’s the Phillips Way.

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
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.
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.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
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.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.

All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
