- Pickup Truck Crash Kills Three, Phoenix PD Investigates
The Phoenix Police Department responded to a fatal pickup truck accident Sunday night that resulted in the deaths of all three occupants after the vehicle flipped into a canal near the 9100 block of W. Campbell Road.
The accident happened at approximately 10:15 p.m. Sunday evening. Witnesses reported that the driver of the pickup truck may have been racing before the accident took place, but investigators have not yet determined what ultimately caused the crash and a spokesperson for the Phoenix Fire Department could not confirm that information to reporters.
Sgt. Trent Crump, spokesperson for the Phoenix Police Department, said that the vehicle caught air and landed in the canal. Each of the three vehicle occupants were ejected from the pickup during the impact. Two of the occupants died at the scene of the crash while the third was pulled from the canal and taken to a local hospital. That individual was pronounced dead at the hospital a short while later.
There is no information regarding whether alcohol was involved in the accident at this time.
Tragic accidents like this occur too frequently on Phoenix roadways because of negligence and reckless behavior. In Arizona, driving recklessly or aggressively is against the law and punishable by citation and fine. Reckless drivers may be:
- Fined up to $750
- Sentenced to jail for up to four months
In addition, negligent and reckless drivers may be liable for any accidents caused because of their irresponsible behavior.
If you or someone you love was the victim of a reckless driver, you may wish to file a lawsuit for the pain and suffering you experienced.
