Two People Killed in Phoenix Car Accident as Vehicle Drives Into a Home
When a deadly Phoenix car accident occurs at a certain point in the day, it tends to raise suspicion that impairment of the driver could have been a factor. While no indication has been given in this regard, what is known is that two people were tragically killed in a Phoenix car accident this morning when a vehicle veered off of a road and plowed into a home. Police are continuing to investigate the situation, but it is too soon to have much of an idea regarding what happened or what caused the fatal crash.
According to authorities, the latest fatal Phoenix car accident occurred at 3 a.m. this morning near 24th Street and Osborn Road. The driver of a Kia sedan lost control of the vehicle at that point, and it veered off the road as a result. The sedan plowed into a home and both occupants of it were ejected as a result of the impact. Both were also killed as a result of the injuries sustained in the impact. No one who was in the home at the time of the crash was injured, and police have not yet released the names of those involved in this crash.
