- Two People Killed in Wrong-Way Phoenix Car Accident
When people head out onto the highway, they tend to expect that certain mistakes could be made by other drivers. While experienced drivers mostly feel as though they’ve seen it all, few would ever expect to see a vehicle coming at them while driving in the wrong direction on a highway, especially in an HOV lane. Tragically, that’s what occurred over the weekend in a Phoenix car accident that killed two people. While authorities have not yet made a final determination, they do suspect that alcohol could have been a factor in the crash.
This fatal Phoenix car accident occurred at approximately 4:45 a.m. on Saturday on Interstate 10 near 40th Street. A pickup truck was traveling in a westward direction in the eastbound lanes of the highway, and it eventually crashed head-on into a Nissan sedan that was being driven by 22-year-old Adrice Lynn McMichael. Tragically, the impact led to her death as well as the death of her passenger, 24-year-old Malissa Therese Jaime. The driver of the pickup truck, 25-year-old Alex Naranjo of Phoenix, was seriously injured but survived the crash.
Arizona Car Accident Statistics
First, we’d like to send our condolences to the family and friends of the women who were killed. To lose two lives in this senseless manner is about as tragic as it gets, and we hope that their families are able to overcome their intense grief at some point. In addition, this fatal Phoenix car accident will also become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year in the state, more than 65,000 people are injured and more than 1,000 people are killed in these crashes.
How A Lawyer May Be Able To Help
It’s likely that the driver of the pickup truck will face significant criminal charges. In addition, he could face civil liability if the families of the women who were killed file Arizona wrongful death lawsuits. If these claims are filed and are successful, it could lead to an award of damages that includes compensation for medical, funeral and burial costs as well as lost income and loss of companionship.
