- Woman Arrested After Fatal Phoenix Hit-and-Run Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Riding a bicycle is a regular occurrence in Phoenix, and those who spend time on the city’s streets understand that bicyclists are a regular sight. Unfortunately, there are times when bicyclists are harmed because of mistakes made by motorists who are navigating much larger vehicles. Tragically, one man paid the ultimate price for some sort of mistake recently, as he was killed in a Phoenix bicycle accident that became a hit-and-run investigation for a short period of time.
The latest fatal Phoenix bicycle accident occurred on Sunday at 4:30 a.m. when an unidentified 53-year-old man was moving in a westbound direction near 48th and Van Buren streets. Suddenly, the man was hit by a Chevrolet being driven by Lora Lynn Muton. The man was killed at the scene, and the driver attempted to flee the scene but was quickly apprehended at 3700 E. Van Buren Street. Police believe that alcohol could be a factor in this crash, and the investigation is continuing.

Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
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.
My paralegal , Caroline , was on top of her game - very responsive and always answered any questions I had and in a timely manner . My attorney Rob ,was the best attorney I ever had . He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
