- Two People Killed in Arizona Car Accident on Interstate 40 | Legal News | News Ticker
Sharing the road with big rigs is something that all of us who get behind the wheel of a vehicle do every day. While the drivers of these vehicles are generally well trained and highly experienced at navigating these enormous vehicles, there are limitations to what they can do and see, and when something goes wrong on a highway that involves these vehicles it can lead to disaster. Tragically, something went wrong on Interstate 40 over the weekend when an SUV collided with a tractor trailer and killed two people in an Arizona car accident.
According to authorities, this fatal Arizona car accident occurred on Friday on Interstate 40 near Mile Post 89, which is near Willows Ranch Road in Mohave County. An SUV which was occupied by 63-year-old Clark Franz of Mormon Lake and his 57-year-old wife Linda Lou collided with the side of a tractor trailer. The force of the impact spun the SUV out of control and off the road, where it collided with a rock well and overturned. Neither person in the SUV survived, and the tractor trailer did not stop, perhaps because it did not realize a crash had occurred. Police are attempting to find the driver of the big rig for questioning.
Arizona Car Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the people who were killed in this Arizona big rig accident, as this was truly a tragic loss of two lives. In addition, this Arizona car accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding these crashes that occur on a state-wide basis. Every year, more than 65,000 people are injured and more than 1,000 people are killed in these occurrences.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
Clearly, more information would be necessary in order to determine whether or not the driver of the tractor trailer was at fault for the crash. If he or she was, then it’s possible that the family members of those who were killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit against the driver of the big rig and perhaps the trucking company once all parties are properly identified. Such a lawsuit, if successful, could bring a damages award to the family that compensates them for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their lost income and their loss of companionship.
If you have lost someone you love because of a negligent driver, you need to seek the help of Arizona wrongful death lawyers who have been successfully defending the legal rights of grieving families for many years. Contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

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!
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.

Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
Liz was great
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.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
