- Police Officer Killed in Arizona Car Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
When people gain experience behind the wheel of a vehicle, they tend to learn how to anticipate common mistakes that other drivers will make and avoid the potential harm that can result. However, there are certain problems arise that can neither be foreseen nor avoided when there is a total lack of time to do so. Tragically, that appears to be what occurred when a police officer was killed on his way to a work meeting in an Arizona car accident on Sunday afternoon. Police have not yet decided whether or not charges will be filed.
According to authorities, this fatal Arizona car accident occurred yesterday at approximately 4 p.m. 26-year-old Aaron Peru, who had only been a member of the San Carlos Police Department for about a month, was driving to a mandatory work meeting on U.S. 70 just west of Safford when a vehicle carrying a trailer that was moving in the other direction had that trailer come loose. It crashed head-on into the officer, and he was killed as a result of the injuries suffered. The name of the other driver was not released.
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 killed. Losing a life at such a young age and in such an avoidable circumstance is truly a tragedy. In addition, this fatal Safford car accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year, more than 140,000 crashes occur, leading to more than 65,000 injuries and to more than 1,000 fatalities.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
While more information seems to be forthcoming from investigators, it also seems possible that the driver hauling the trailer was negligent in causing this fatal Arizona car accident. Therefore, it’s also possible for the family of the man who was killed to file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against that driver. If such a lawsuit is filed and is successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their lost income and loss of companionship.
If you have lost someone you love to a crash, you need to seek the help of Arizona wrongful death lawyers who have been fighting for the rights of grieving families for many years. Contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

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.
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.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Liz was great
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.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
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 !!!
