Arizona auto accidents leave families changed forever

Without warning, lives can change forever, often due to circumstances beyond one's control. Countless families who have been devastated when unexpected tragedies such as auto accidents occur in spite of the precautions taken. One recent collision in Arizona has left surviving family members grieving the loss of three loved ones.

Arizona officials recently arrested a driver who was involved in a head-on collision on Interstate 10. According to the report, the man was traveling against opposing traffic when he entered the highway. After only traveling approximately 500 feet, his car smashed into another vehicle.

Three women in the second car were killed in the collision. It is unknown whether the victims were related to one another, though they were all from the same California city. The 49-year-old male driver of the wrong-way vehicle has been taken into custody and will likely face charges of vehicular homicide.

Authorities are still working to complete their investigation into this deadly wreck and it is unknown, whether the Utah resident was under the influence of intoxicating substances at the time of the crash. The three women, a 55-year-old and two 31-year-olds, leave behind many grieving loved ones who will be forced to face life without them. In many of these situations, family members who lose loved ones in auto accidents often sustain significant monetary damages as well. An experienced personal injury attorney may be able to provide invaluable assistance in gathering information and all relevant documentation in order to pursue a civil lawsuit against the party or parties deemed responsible for their financial losses.
