Arizona car accident kills 1, injures 1

Authorities with the Oro Valley Police Department report that they are investigating a two-vehicle wreck that occurred at about 6:20 p.m. on July 20, leaving one person dead and another severely injured. A third person involved in the crash reported no injuries and declined transportation to a nearby hospital.

According to the preliminary investigation, the accident occurred at the intersection of West Lambert and La Cholla when a westbound white Chevrolet truck struck a southbound VW Beetle. Reports indicate that the truck driver failed to stop at the intersection’s red light. The Volkswagen driver died from his injuries, and his passenger suffered major injuries. That individual was transported via medical helicopter to UAMC’s trauma center. The truck driver was not hurt.

It was not determined whether any of the individuals involved in the accident were wearing seat belts. Police stated that alcohol or drugs did not contribute to the crash, and the investigation is still ongoing.

Car accidents can quickly turn deadly or cause serious injuries that may lead to a person being disabled for life. If one of the drivers involved was speeding, texting or driving in a careless or reckless manner at the time of the crash, for instance, the injured party could possibly hold that driver liable for damages. A lawyer may be able to determine if an injured car accident victim is qualified to file a personal injury claim in civil court.

By using information from official documentation such as the injured person’s medical records, the police report and any witness statements, a lawyer could substantiate a claim. A victim could possibly receive financial compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages and, under some circumstances, pain and suffering.
