One Killed, Three Injured in Phoenix Motorcycle Accident
Riding a motorcycle is almost always a fun experience, and some choose this form of transportation for other reasons that include fuel economy and overall cost. However, when something goes wrong on a motorcycle, it can lead to instant disaster. Tragically, that appears to be what occurred last night when one person was killed and three others were injured in a Phoenix motorcycle accident. Police are still investigating the matter, but it appears that the collision involved a much larger vehicle as well.
According to police, the latest fatal Phoenix motorcycle accident occurred at approximately 7 p.m. last night near the intersection of Asher Hills Drive and Cave Creek Road. A group of four motorcyclists were moving in a southbound direction on Cave Creek Road when the driver of a pickup truck attempted a left turn from Ashler Hills onto northbound Cave Creek Road. The vehicles collided, and one person was killed and another was critically injured. Two others sustained what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. None of the names of those involved were released.

While more facts would need to be revealed before a specific legal analysis could be made, it's possible that those who were injured and the family of the person who was killed could file Arizona personal injury and Arizona wrongful death lawsuits. If these claims are filed and are successful, those who suffered losses would be compensated in the form of damages that are awarded. Of course, the types and amounts of damages that could be obtained would depend on the amount of losses suffered.
