- Man Killed in Own Bed in Freak Phoenix Car Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Most people understand that when they venture out into traffic, they are encountering danger and they must put some level of trust into motorists nearby. However, few if any people would ever consider themselves to be in danger from moving vehicles while they are asleep in their own beds. Tragically, one man paid the ultimate price for the recklessness of others when he was killed by a vehicle that crashed through his home while he was asleep in his bedroom in a freakish Phoenix car accident. Police have made arrests in the aftermath of this incident and the investigation continues.
According to authorities, the latest fatal Phoenix car accident occurred at 4:30 a.m. on Saturday morning at 7300 W. Roma Avenue. Eduardo Luis Arechiga, 21, and his 16-year-old brother were visiting a friend of theirs who lived next door to Juan Carlos Mendez. It was alleged that they were drinking, and the driver got into his SUV and was performing amateur stunt maneuvers in a nearby intersection. The driver lost control of his vehicle, which hit a Toyota parked in the driveway of Mr. Mendez’s home. The Toyota went through the wall of the bedroom along with the SUV and ran over the victim, who died at the scene. The driver was arrested after fleeing the scene on foot on suspicion of manslaughter, leaving the scene of an injury accident, eight counts of endangerment, and criminal damage.
Arizona Car Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the man who was tragically killed. He clearly did nothing wrong and did not deserve to meet this violent end. We hope that justice is served in this matter as well. In addition, this Phoenix car accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year, 140,000 such accidents occur, leading to more than 65,000 injuries and to more than 1,000 fatalities.
Phoenix Wrongful Death Lawyers
Clearly, the family of the man who was killed would have reason to look into the filing of an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against the driver in this case and perhaps others who were involved. If such a lawsuit was filed and was successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensate the survivors 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 reckless driver, you need to seek the help of Phoenix wrongful death lawyers who have been defending the rights of grieving families for many years. Contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

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 !!!
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
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!
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
