Phoenix, AZ (October 6, 2019) – A man suspected of driving while impaired struck and killed another driver on Saturday afternoon.
According to officers from the Phoenix Police Department, the 29-year-old man was driving a 2019 Toyota Camry when he turned left from Weldon Avenue near Northwest Grand Avenue and crashed into Heather Began, 25, who was driving a 2008 Ford Fusion. The crash occurred around 4:15 p.m.
Both drivers were transported to the hospital where Began was pronounced dead and the unidentified man was treated for critical injuries. Investigators believe that both impairment and speed were factors in the crash.
