Suspect Arrested After Causing Multiple Crashes
August 21, 2020
A suspect who caused several car crashes has been apprehended following a police pursuit, according to authorities. The suspect has been identified as Carlos Martinez Baldenegro, 38, of Tucson.
On Thursday, Aug. 20, at around 7:15 a.m., an Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) trooper was preparing to make a traffic stop on a driver on the eastbound side of Interstate 10 near Chandler Boulevard. While the trooper turned on his vehicle’s emergency lights for the stop, Baldenegro approached from behind driving a Ford F-150. He was traveling at a high rate of speed as he passed the trooper and continued on I-10 eastbound. The trooper followed and attempted to make a traffic stop, but Baldenegro failed to pull over, and authorities were forced to pursue him.
Troopers utilized spike strips at milepost 181, which deflated both the truck’s front tires. Baldenegro was then arrested. According to AZDPS, Baldenegro allegedly caused multiple crashes in the greater Phoenix area and nearly hit an Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) employee before the chase. He has been booked at the Pinal County Jail on charges of felony flight, reckless driving, DUI, and three counts of criminal damages. Baldenegro will also be charged in Maricopa County.

Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
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. ❤️
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!
Phillips law group is the best around!
