- Young Man Killed in Tucson Pedestrian As a Result of a Drag Race | Legal News | News Ticker
Drag racing is an activity that is generally taken part in by young people, and it’s illegal almost everywhere in the United States because of the obvious dangers it presents to anyone involved and to anyone in the area at the time. Unfortunately, outlawing this practice does not prevent it from occurring. Tragically, police suspect that a drag race was taking place yesterday afternoon that led to a fatal Tucson pedestrian accident when a man who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time was hit and killed. Police have made one arrest in the matter.
According to authorities, this fatal Tucson pedestrian accident occurred yesterday at approximately 3 p.m. on South Campbell Avenue at East Minorka Street, near East Drexel Road. According to witnesses, two cars were headed south on South Campbell Avenue in a race when one of the vehicles veered out of control, slammed into a fire hydrant and then hit the unidentified pedestrian, killing him instantly. The pedestrian was believed to be in his teens. Since then, police have arrested 18-year-old Daniel J. Amado on suspicion of leaving the scene of a deadly accident.

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
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!
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.
