Motor vehicle accident in Phoenix proves fatal

When a car crash happens, it is almost never a positive event. Those that result in the loss of life are particularly troubling. They can often leave both a family and law enforcement with more questions than answers. A motor vehicle accident here in Arizona that resulted in the death of one woman may have done just that as investigators work to find out exactly why the collision occurred.

Authorities say that the crash happened on a recent afternoon. A 79-year-old man driving east on a local road allegedly failed to fully stop for a stop sign. Police say that although he reduced his speed, he failed to fully stop his vehicle before proceeding through the intersection. Authorities say that he then struck the car of a woman, which caused her vehicle to spin and hit a dump truck driving north through the intersection.

The woman did not survive and police only recently released her identity. The two other drivers involved in the collision were unharmed. Authorities have stated that they do not believe anyone in the accident was driving while impaired, but haven't confirmed any other information about the exact cause of the collision. There is no word at this time on whether they plan to file charges.

When a motor vehicle accident like this one happens, it can change a family's life in an instant. In this case, they may have been looking forward to spending the winter holidays with their loved one, but had that chance taken from them. Filing a wrongful death claim may be the best way for them and others like them to seek justice in the death of their loved one. An Arizona attorney with extensive experience in personal injury law can answer any questions that those in a similar situation may have.
