One killed, two injured in head-on car accident in Arizona

According to recent reports, a 66-year-old man lost his life when the vehicle he was driving was hit head-on by a car being operated by a possibly drunk driver. Accident investigators are still piecing the tragic head-on collision together, but preliminary investigations indicate that the car accident occurred in the afternoon on Kolb Road between Irvington and Valencia Roads in Tucson, when a car traveling in opposite direction collided with the 66-year-old man's car.

A Toyota Tundra being driven by a 25-year-old man traveling southbound on Kolb Road apparently cut across the elevated median, crossed over into the opposite lane and collided head-on with the older man's car. The man was taken to a nearby hospital but passed away shortly thereafter. In addition to the 66-year-old man, two others were also injured in the collision but fortunately suffered just minor injuries.

Authorities indicated that alcohol may have played a role in the car accident. As a result of this tragic car accident, the 25-year-old was charged with a count each of second-degree murder, endangerment, and felony criminal damage.

All drivers have a duty to obey all traffic laws, be attentive, and exercise reasonable care when sharing the roadways with other motorists. Despite traffic rules and regulations, drunk driving accidents routinely occur in and around Flagstaff, causing not only serious injuries but also death.

When a loved one is injured or killed after being hit by a drunk driver, it is very difficult to fathom a family's loss or understand a car accident victim's pain and suffering. Such an experience can be life-altering for those directly impacted. Consulting with a personal injury lawyer familiar with car accident cases may not be the first thing on a car accident victim's mind, but it may give some measure of justice at an otherwise distressing and chaotic time.
