One killed in Arizona crash that resulted in road closures

Motorists are familiar with the many causes of traffic. While high traffic times are related to the morning and evening rush hour commutes, other times, traffic is caused by automobile collisions.

Depending on the types and severity of a crash, roads could be closed and traffic could be backed up for miles. Although car accidents are a familiar scene, some of these accidents are serious, even fatal.

A fatal crash in Maricopa recently occurred. According to reports, the collision resulted in road closures and traffic. The accident happened on State Route 347 between Riggs Road and Casa Blanca Road. Authorities reported that two cars were initially involved. However, a third vehicle's involvement is what caused the crash to become fatal.

Based on reports, two cars collided in the southbound lanes of State Route 347. One of the motorists got out of their vehicles to check the damages following this crash. This is when a third vehicle struck the motorists at the scene of the initial crash.

The investigation is still ongoing, and it is unclear whether anyone else was harmed in the crash. Authorities have not released any information about the cause of the initial crash either. Once the investigation is complete, authorities should determine the cause and liability involved in the crash.

If a negligent driver caused a collision or is partially liable for a fatal crash, it is possible to hold that driver responsible for any losses and damages caused by the accident. Surviving family members could file a wrongful death claim, helping hold a negligent driver accountable and help them recover compensation for their losses.
