Phoenix DUI Crash Leaves Motorist With Critical Injuries
PHOENIX, AZ – A Phoenix man may never regain use of his legs after an accident involving a drunk driver left him severely injured Saturday.
According to Fox 10 Phoenix, the multi-vehicle crash occurred along State Route 51 near Shea Boulevard.
Officials with the Arizona Department of Public Safety believe a pickup truck driven by 34-year-old Jason Kengott rear-ended a vehicle driven by Edgardo Soto, 50, at a high rate of speed.
The collision forced Soto’s vehicle up onto an embankment and into a tree. Both Soto and his sister survived the crash. However, his spine and ribs were broken in multiple places.
Witnesses recounted seeing Kengott driving in the wrong direction on the freeway moments before the crash. He failed a field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol level of .136.
Kengott was arrested for DUI and two counts of aggravated assault following the accident.

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.
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.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
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.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
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.
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!!
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.
