- Single-Vehicle Phoenix Car Accident Leads to Two Fatalities | Legal News | News Ticker
When people get behind the wheel of a vehicle, many fail to remember that even a one-second lapse in judgment or focus can instantly lead to disaster. Tragically, that could be what occurred in the early hours of this morning when a single-vehicle Phoenix car accident led to the deaths of both the driver and the passenger. Police closed the street while they began their investigation into the incident, and few details have been released with respect to the parties involved and the potential cause of the crash.
According to authorities, the latest fatal Phoenix car accident occurred early this morning when a vehicle moving in a northbound direction on 32nd Street veered out of control just north of Shea Boulevard in Phoenix. The vehicle crossed the center line of 32nd Street and continued at a high rate of speed until it crashed into a tree. Rescuers responded to the crash scene quickly, but the passenger in the vehicle was killed instantly. The driver was rushed to a nearby hospital, but died from his injuries. The names of those involved will be released after the families are notified.
Arizona Car Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to express our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the people who were killed. No one should ever have to receive the type of tragic news that these families are about to receive from the police. In addition, this fatal Phoenix car accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year, more than 140,000 such accidents occur, and they lead to more than 65,000 injuries and to more than 1,000 deaths.
Phoenix Wrongful Death Lawyers
Clearly, more information would need to be reviewed closely before any legal recommendation could be made, but Arizona law requires drivers to protect their passengers from situations of unreasonable risk of harm. If it turns out that the driver was negligent in causing this Phoenix car accident, it could lead to the filing of an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against the estate of the driver by the family of the passenger who was killed. If such a claim was filed and was successful, the family could recover damages that compensate them 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 negligent driver, you need to seek the help of Phoenix wrongful death lawyers who have been holding those responsible for these tragic losses accountable for many years. Contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
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.
