Phoenix taxi accident leaves 1 dead and 2 critically injured

Authorities in Arizona have reported that one person was killed and two others were seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident in southeast Phoenix on Nov. 8. The investigation into the car accident is being conducted by the Phoenix Police Department with assistance from the Department of Public Safety. The cause of the wreck was not immediately clear.

According to a police report, the driver of a Toyota Prius taxi lost control of the vehicle as she proceeded westbound on Interstate 10 near South 40th Street. The taxi then left the roadway, crashed through a fence and hit a utility pole before coming to a stop.

A bystander attempted to assist the injured occupants of the taxi, and she told reporters that she attempted to perform CPR on a 70-year-old woman who had been traveling in the vehicle's front seat. The woman was said to be unresponsive when first responders arrived at the scene. She was declared dead after being transported to an area hospital. A 71-year-old male passenger and the taxi's 32-year-old driver were also transported by ambulance to the hospital for treatment of critical injuries.

Families who lose a loved one in a motor vehicle accident may pursue legal remedies when their loss was caused by the negligent actions of others. A personal injury lawyer could help them file a suit against the liable parties. A family might face severe financial hardship due to medical expenses and funeral bills, and their situation may be made even more challenging if their loved one was the primary source of income. Compensation could be awarded to help a family recover some of these financial losses.
