- Woman Killed by Driver Fleeing Prior Crash in Tucson Car Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
When drivers are involved in Arizona car accidents, the law requires that they remain on the scene so that authorities can take the proper steps required to clear the area and to complete the necessary work. When drivers flee the scene of an Arizona car accident, it only makes the situation worse. Tragically, a driver fleeing the scene of a Tucson car accident on Tuesday wound up causing another crash soon thereafter, and the second crash that occurred as he was fleeing caused the death of a woman.
According to authorities, this fatal Tucson car accident occurred on Tuesday just after 10 a.m. at the intersection of East Grant Road and North Dodge Boulevard. The driver of a pickup truck had just rear-ended another vehicle, then took off down the road before hitting 44-year-old Marta I. Kellogg in the intersection because he ran a red light. Ms. Kellogg was killed as a result of the second accident, and the unidentified driver was arrested, although no notification of specific charges has been provided.
Arizona Car Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed. She clearly did nothing wrong and was tragically in the wrong place at the wrong time. We hope justice is served in what is likely to be a criminal prosecution. In addition, this fatal Tucson car accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year, more than 65,000 people are injured and more than 1,000 people are killed in these occurrences.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
While it seems all but certain that the driver of the pickup truck will face serious criminal charges, it’s also possible that the family of the woman who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death claim against the unidentified man. If such a lawsuit was filed and was successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family 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 reckless driver, you need to seek the help of Arizona 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.

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.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
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!
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
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.
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.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
