Woman killed in Arizona car accident

According to reports, a woman was killed in Phoenix on Feb. 16 when a SUV speeding without headlights reportedly crashed into her car. According to police, the accident happened near I-17 and Thunderbird.

Officers indicated that two people, a man and a woman, were inside of an SUV that ran a red light. Upon doing so, the SUV crashed into the side of the 48-year-old woman’s Dodge Neon. She was pronounced dead at the accident scene. Law enforcement officers indicated both the man and woman are believed to have been intoxicated at the time.

Reports indicate that the two people in the SUV may have been fleeing from police at the time of the accident. They were both apparently wanted for allegedly flashing a gun at another car in a road rage incident. Both the man and woman were arrested and are facing felony charges. The man was charged with manslaughter and the woman is facing charges of felony flight and DUI. Law enforcement charged her with DUI as they believe she was driving at the time of the earlier road rage incident.

When a person is seriously injured or killed in a car collision, either they or their family may want to consider filing a civil lawsuit against the driver who caused it. If the person survives but is seriously injured, he or she would file a personal injury civil lawsuit. If a person dies, the family may file a wrongful death lawsuit in the case. Through such lawsuits, plaintiffs may be able to recover damages to compensate them for the losses they have suffered. Those in such a situation can consult with a personal injury attorney to determine the remedies that are available.
