Surprise, AZ (April 16, 2022) – Police responded to reports of a fatal car accident on Grand Avenue in Surprise on Monday, April 11th.
The collision took place at about 11:30 a.m. in the area of 163rd Avenue when Dewey Sigler, the driver of a rented Penske box truck, struck a Toyota.
The impact pushed the Toyota off the road causing injuries to two people. Both were transported to an area trauma center in unknown conditions.
Sigler’s rental truck then collided with a Nissan Altima and a tractor-trailer.
The driver of the Nissan, since identified as 69-year-old Jeffrey Hilbert, died at the scene.
Emergency responders tried to treat Sigler in the back of a DPS vehicle. He was transported by paramedics to a local hospital for additional treatment.
According to court documents, Sigler’s toxicology tests showed “a probable positive for methamphetamines.” Investigators are currently awaiting the results of additional blood tests.
Once he was discharged from the hospital, he was arrested and charged with possession of narcotics and suspicion of homicide.
The accident remains under active investigation.
