Tolleson, AZ (July 26, 2022) – One woman was killed and several more, two of whom were children, were hospitalized after a speeding driver caused a serious collision on Tuesday, July 26th in Tolleson.
According to sources, at about 4:00 p.m., a man was speeding down 99th Avenue when he crashed into a crossover SUV carrying five people as the driver was attempting to make a lefthand turn onto Interstate 10.
A woman was ejected from the SUV and died at the scene.
Both children were transported to Phoenix Children’s Hospital in non-critical condition. The two remaining adults were also hospitalized in serious condition.
The speeding driver sustained only minor injuries and remained at the scene.

Wrongful Deaths in Arizona
Wrongful death claims are contingent on the concept that the decedent would have been entitled to file a personal injury claim if they hadn’t died. Therefore, the same types of evidence that are relevant in a personal injury claim can also be used in a wrongful death claim.
Liability and negligence in a wrongful death claim are comparable to a personal injury claim. If someone owed the deceased a duty of care before their death and, through negligent behavior, they breached that duty, you are entitled to file a claim of wrongful death on their behalf.
To begin the claims process, you will have to have your claim evaluated by an attorney. Our lawyers will be able to assess whether you have a legitimate case and immediately begin a comprehensive investigation into your family member’s death.
During the investigation, we will gather any proof of negligence, go over liability policies, and accurately calculate how much compensation you are entitled to from the negligent party. This could include reviewing your family member’s financial records to gauge their lost income, future earnings, and benefits and talking to their doctors to determine their level of pain and suffering before they died.
