Mesa, AZ (November 29, 2019) – A man died in a rollover crash in Mesa on Thursday afternoon, according to police officials.
Police say it appears the driver of the pickup truck, identified as 58-year-old Steven Ketchum, collided with another vehicle and rolled over around 3:00 p.m. on Thursday near University Drive and Greenfield Road in Mesa. Ketchum was pronounced dead at the scene. It is unclear if the other driver was injured in the collision. Police are still investigating the cause of the crash at this time.
Police won’t know if impairment was a factor until after an autopsy has been performed. Additional details about the crash were not immediately available, and it’s unclear how the crash occurred at this time.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of Steven Ketchum.
According to recent crash data, nearly 130,000 collisions happened in Arizona last year alone. Reports from the Arizona Department of Public Safety show that more than 11,000 of these accidents involved at least two drivers and several injuries or even deaths. When it comes to these injurious and fatal accidents, victims are left to pick up the pieces.
And if multiple victims are injured in an accident, they must negotiate with other drivers’ insurance companies, deal with long-term physical pain, and scramble to cover expensive hospital bills. Occasionally, victims succumb to their injuries, leaving their grieving families to cope with emotional trauma and financial difficulties as a result of another driver’s negligence.
But the victims and their families affected by these wrecks can seek help from an injury attorney. A skilled attorney can help victims seek justice and the fair compensation they deserve from suffering in an accident that occurred through no fault of their own.
