Wrong Way Accident on I-10 Causes Three Deaths
Three people were fatally injured in a head-on, wrong way crash on Interstate 10 near Tonopah on Friday, June 17.
According to the Department of Public Safety (DPS), two women and one man died during the accident while another person was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Just before 9 p.m. near milepost 92, witnesses said they saw a silver car drive away at close to 100 miles per hour from the scene of a different crash. DPS received a call around 9:30 p.m. about a driver headed east in the westbound lanes of I-10. Moments later, reports came in about the head-on crash.
When troopers arrived at the scene, it was confirmed that the silver vehicle was the same one fleeing the previous accident.
Although unconfirmed, DPS believes the driver of the silver vehicle was impaired. The interstate was shut down for five hours after the accident.
The names of the victims were not released as their loved ones are notified about the tragic accident.
Wrong way accidents continue to plague those living in the Phoenix area. Despite efforts to create and put into place solutions like clearer signage and wrong way reflectors, wrong way accidents continue to make the news.
Last month, in Yuma, Arizona, two people died in a wrong way crash on Interstate 8. An 80-year-old woman was driving east on the westbound lanes of the interstate when she struck the other victim.
In April, a wrong way crash on Loop 101 injured a family of four. It was later revealed that the driver of the vehicle traveling the wrong way has a blood alcohol concentration of .185, which is more than two times the legal limit.
As most of these crashes occur on interstates when vehicles are driving at a fast velocity, the effects of these crashes is often devastating and fatal.

Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
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.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
My paralegal , Caroline , was on top of her game - very responsive and always answered any questions I had and in a timely manner . My attorney Rob ,was the best attorney I ever had . He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
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.
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!!
