- Man Killed by Van in Flagstaff Pedestrian Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
From the time we are taught how to drive, we are told that we need to approach this activity defensively so that we can learn to anticipate the actions of others. Establishing this mindset will allow people to avoid serious mistakes and even more serious results. Tragically, something was amiss last weekend when a commercial van hit and killed a man in a Flagstaff pedestrian accident. Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash but they have already dismissed the possibility of alcohol being a factor.
According to authorities, this fatal Flagstaff car accident occurred during the early morning hours of Sunday when 50-year-old Leroy Honyaktewa of Second Mesa was attempting to cross Route 66 and Ponderosa Parkway. As he did so, he was hit by a commercial van and was killed as a result of the injuries he suffered. The driver of the van claimed that the pedestrian was wearing dark clothing and that he did not have time to react to the man’s appearance in the roadway, and no determination of fault has yet been made by police.
Arizona Pedestrian Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the man who was killed. Losing a life in such a random and violent manner is always truly tragic, and we hope that the family of the man is able to come together and to somehow work through their grief and sorrow. In addition, this Flagstaff pedestrian accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents. Every year, more than 1,500 such accidents occur, leading to more than 1,300 injuries and to more than 120 fatalities.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
Clearly, more information would be necessary to provide a full legal analysis of this fatal Flagstaff pedestrian accident. However, if it turns out that the driver of the van was at fault for the crash, it’s possible that the family of the man who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against both the driver and the driver’s employer. If such a lawsuit was filed and was successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their lost income and their loss of companionship.
If you have lost someone you love to a crash, you need to seek the help of Arizona wrongful death lawyers who have been fighting for the rights of suffering families for many years. Contact the Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

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.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
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. ❤️
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!!
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
Liz was great
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
