According to officials, the collision closed I-10 eastbound, also known as the Papago Freeway, around 12:31 a.m. An Arizona Department of Transportation notes that the accident occurred near 91st Avenue. Investigators and emergency crews were on the scene to determine the cause of the deadly accident and assist victims.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
Throughout the state, nearly 1,000 deaths occurred as a result of auto accidents in 2017 alone, reaching a 10-year high for Arizona. Crash figures for 2018 followed a similar pattern, and now that more cars have hit the road for summer, the risk of these hazardous incidents is increased.
After a car accident, costly medical bills, long-term injuries, and even job loss are all too common. Victims and their relatives, however, may contact a lawyer for assistance in dealing with these tragic effects. In some cases, auto accident lawyers can help victims and their families get justice from a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
