- Man Killed by School Bus in Phoenix Pedestrian Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Getting off of a metro transit bus is an activity that many people partake in and that most take for granted in terms of the potential danger involved. Tragically, one local man paid the ultimate price for attempting to cross a street after getting off of a city bus this morning, as he was killed by a passing school bus. Police are investigating the accident, but it could take some time before all of the details are available. There were children on the school bus, but none of them were injured.
According to authorities, the latest Phoenix pedestrian accident occurred at approximately 7:30 this morning when an 18-year-old man got off of a city bus at 46th Street and Broadway Road. He crossed in front of the bus as is usually how it’s done, but as he attempted to cross the street he was hit by a passing school bus. Police indicated that the driver of the school bus did not have time to react before colliding with the man, and he was killed at the scene. Police also mentioned that it’s likely that none of the young children on the bus saw the crash occur.
Arizona Pedestrian Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to send our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the young man who was killed. He has not been identified, but his family is about to receive news from police that no one should ever have to receive. In addition, this fatal Phoenix pedestrian accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents. Every year, more than 1,500 such crashes occur, injuring more than 1,400 people and killing more than 10 people every month.
Phoenix Wrongful Death Lawyers
More would obviously need to be known before a final legal opinion could be offered, but if it turns out that the driver of the school bus was either completely negligent or likely more negligent than the man who was killed, it’s possible that his family could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against the school district that manages the bus line. If such a claim was filed and was successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensate the family for their loss. However, there would likely need to be steps taken by the family before the lawsuit could be filed.
If you have lost someone you love to a negligent driver, you need to seek the help of Phoenix wrongful death lawyers who have been holding those responsible for this type of harm accountable for many years. Contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!

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. ❤️
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.
Liz was great
