Arizona car accident injures several and kills small child

According to the Phoenix Police, in a multi-car accident involving three cars, a 4-year-old recently lost her life when the vehicle she was riding in was struck head-on by a Ford Explorer. The 4-year-old's young brother survived the car accident and was listed in stable condition after the frightening head-on collision. Additionally, passengers in the other cars who were involved in the car collision suffered serious injuries.

The accident is still under investigation, but preliminary reports indicate that a woman driving a Ford Explorer headed into traffic, and first collided with a Chevy Malibu and then slammed head-on into a Nissan Frontier pickup truck. The Nissan was carrying children at the time of the crash, which ultimately proved fatal. The 4-year-old girl passed away shortly after she arrived at the hospital. Passengers in the vehicles suffered serious injuries.

Reports indicate that the driver of the Ford Explorer was 7 months pregnant. According to police officers on the scene she was transported to a nearby hospital where she underwent emergency surgery to deliver her baby. Her baby was listed in critical condition.

It is difficult to fathom what the families of those involved in the accident are going through. Most Flagstaff residents are aware that traffic laws are in place to prevent such incidents. However, car accidents routinely occur causing not only serious injury to motorists but also death at times. Even though a lost life cannot be brought back, those who have suffered injuries in a car accident may find it helpful to talk with a personal injury lawyer who can evaluate the specific facts of one's case and determine if a personal injury lawsuit is possible.
