- Man Riding in Golf Cart Hit and Killed in Sun City West Hit-and-Run Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Anyone who spends any time in the Phoenix area understands that there are parts of town where people riding in golf carts is a common sight. As such, motorists are expected to take the same precautions as they would with a pedestrian or bicyclist and make sure that they provide enough room for someone in this type of vehicle to move along safely. Tragically, that did not occur on Monday when a man riding in a golf cart was hit by a motorist and killed, and the driver then fled the scene, turning the situation into a Sun City West hit-and-run accident.
According to the authorities, this Sun City West traffic accident occurred on Monday at approximately 1 p.m. when 86-year-old Leonard William Gaabo was riding in his golf cart at the intersection of Tanglewood Drive and Yosemite Drive. At that point, he was hit by the driver of what was described as a red or maroon SUV, possibly made by Jeep. Mr. Gaabo was rushed to a nearby hospital, and he fought bravely until Tuesday when he succumbed to his massive injuries. Police continue to search for the driver.

Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
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.
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!
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
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.
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
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!
