Mesa, AZ (September 20, 2019) – Officials from the Mesa Police Department are investigating a fatal accident that occurred Thursday afternoon that left one man dead and two others injured.
According to authorities, the crash happened around 4:20 p.m. at Sossaman Road and Baseline Road. Mesa Fire officials say that three people were involved in the accident. One driver was pronounced dead at the scene and two others were transported to an area hospital with minor or moderate injuries.
Officers from the Mesa Police Department believe that the deceased driver, a 40-year-old man who collided with a dump truck in his tan SUV, had some sort of medical issue that potentially caused the wreck. Authorities don’t believe impairment is a factor but are still investigating the accident at this time.
