Phoenix, AZ – One Dead After Motorcycle Crash Near 43rd Ave and Indian School Rd

Phoenix, AZ (July 13, 2019) – One man is dead and a woman is injured after a motorcycle accident near 43rd Avenue and Indian School Road on Thursday night, July 11th.

According to officials, a Chevy Equinox driven by 22-year-old Yasmelli Saenz attempted to turn left near 4100 West Indian School Road around 11:00 p.m. but failed to yield. At that point, Saenz hit a motorcycle driven by 21-year-old Samuel Quick. Quick was traveling westbound in the curb lane when the two collided.

Quick, along with his passenger, was thrown from the motorcycle. Both Quick and his passenger were wearing helmets, but Quick sustained fatal injuries. Quick’s passenger, since identified as his girlfriend, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Saenz was processed for impairment and booked for aggravated assault, manslaughter, and endangerment.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Samuel Quick at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family in hopes of a full recovery. 

Motorcycle Accidents in Arizona

Deaths from motorcycle accidents hit an eight-year high in 2016, and though 2017 saw a slight decrease, there were still 4,798 people killed in motorcycle crashes across the state. From hazards presented by other drivers to weather conditions, operating a motorcycle is often considered more dangerous than operating a vehicle due to the lack of protection offered to the driver.
