Phoenix, AZ (December 24, 2019) – One woman is dead and another woman is injured after a serious car crash on Monday afternoon in Phoenix.
Phoenix Police Department officers responded to a two-vehicle crash near 26th Street and Bell Road around 3:30 p.m., per a report from spokeswoman Sgt. Mercedes Fortune. Police have not named the women at this time.
A woman between 60 and 65 years old was driving a Ford Fiesta on Bell Road and attempted to turn onto 26th Street when a woman between 20 and 25 years old driving a black Cadillac in the opposite direction struck her vehicle, according to Fortune.
Both women were transported to a nearby hospital, where the older woman was pronounced dead. The younger woman sustained serious injuries. The accident remains under investigation at this time.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family in hopes of a full recovery.
The latest accident report from the Arizona Department of Transportation showed that the state had more than 130,000 accidents in 2018. Unfortunately, countless injuries resulted from these wrecks. In fact, at least 37,000 of the accidents involved at least two seriously injured victims requiring medical care or hospitalization.
Oftentimes, wreck victims must document their injuries, negotiate with insurance companies, and take time from work. They may even have to deal with lost wages or job loss. But victims and their families can seek help from a personal injury lawyer, especially if they’ve been involved in an accident that’s caused by the negligent actions of another driver.
