- Man Killed in Arizona Motorcycle Accident Allegedly Caused by Racing Motorists | Legal News | News Ticker
Racing is something that goes on all over Arizona and the United States, and many people mistakenly think that engaging in this conduct in rural areas all but eliminates the dangers associated with it. Unfortunately for many innocent motorists who are in the wrong place at the wrong time, this belief has been proven wrong too many times. While nothing has definitively been proven at this point, police suspect that two people racing on a highway caused an Arizona motorcycle accident that led to the death of one person.
According to the authorities, this fatal Arizona motorcycle accident occurred on Wednesday morning just after 11 a.m. on Highway 89A on Mingus Mountain, near milepost 334. Three motorcyclists were headed in one direction on the road when they encountered a Toyota sedan and another motorcycle racing in the opposite direction. The motorcyclists attempted to avoid a collision, but they could not do so and a crash ensued. 75-year-old William H. Pritchett of Dillon, Colorado was killed in the crash and another rider was seriously injured and flown to a nearby hospital. Police are continuing to investigate the situation.

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!

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
