Flagstaff, AZ (June 17, 2019) – On June 16th, a fatal auto accident occurred in Baderville, north of Flagstaff, at 1:27 p.m.
The auto accident occurred on Highway 180, west of Snowbowl Road, when a silver Ford vehicle left the road, collided with a tree, and overturned. No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
Summit and Flagstaff authorities arrived on the scene shortly after the auto accident occurred, where they freed the three people trapped inside the vehicle. All three occupants were transported to Flagstaff Medical Center, where one of the victims was pronounced dead.
The victims have not yet been identified, and authorities are investigating the cause of the auto accident. We extend our thoughts and condolences to the victims and their families.
The start of summer later this month means more cars are hitting the road. That increase in traffic means an increase in the total number of auto accidents, especially those involving injuries and fatalities. In fact, the Arizona Department of Transportation says that auto accident fatalities are on the rise, with an increase of nearly 100 injuries or fatalities from 2016 to 2017.
Deadly auto accidents mean costly medical bills, unforeseen funeral expenses, and unexpected court costs for victims’ families. However, families can contact an auto accident attorney in Phoenix for help, and in some cases, get justice and their entitled compensation.
