Car accident claims the life of one, seriously injures another

Most drivers probably realize that they are assuming some risk when they decide to get behind the wheel. Nevertheless, driving is a privilege and all drivers have an on-going duty to obey all laws and be attentive while driving. Sadly, car accidents are a daily occurrence, and can result in death and serious injuries.

Arizona residents may find it interesting to learn that a 48-year-old man recently lost his life when the car that he was driving was struck by another vehicle as he was travelling through an intersection. At the time of the car accident, the 48-year-old man's 17-year-old daughter was with him in the car and suffered serious injuries. Although the teen survived the accident, she had to be air lifted to a hospital where she was admitted with life threatening injuries.

According to police investigators familiar with details of the accident, the collision occurred when the driver of a pickup truck apparently ran a red light as the 48-year-old driver was travelling through the intersection. The accident occurred shortly before 6:30 in the evening. Accident investigators are still piecing together this tragic accident.

At this stage in the accident investigation, it is not clear if police will bring any charges against the driver of the pick-up truck. Impairment is not suspected in the case. Even though one person lost their life and another was seriously injured, luckily the driver of the pickup truck did not sustain any injuries from the impact. According to the police, he did not require medical attention.

It is hard to imagine what the family of the man and teen are going through. The senseless and sudden loss of a loved is unimaginable. If a negligent driver was responsible or played a role in an accident, then the surviving members may be able to hold the negligent driver responsible. An attorney may be able to assist one in filing a lawsuit during this difficult time.
