Police chase ends in fatal car accident in Arizona

Some individuals may get a certain thrill out of attempting to leave a restaurant without paying. However, if they are confronted about such attempts, a serious situation could result. Parties may then try to flee the scene in their vehicle, but if they are traveling over the speed limit, that speed could potentially lead to the situation becoming even more devastating as a car accident could occur.

A similar situation recently took place in Arizona when a couple apparently attempted to leave a restaurant without paying for their meal. After they were approached about the incident, the couple then got into their vehicle and tried to leave. Authorities were alerted to the situation, and while they were reacting, one of the individuals in the car made a domestic violence call. Authorities continued to pursue the vehicle, which did not stop when officers made attempts.

The driver of the vehicle eventually lost control, and as a result, crashed into another vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle and the passenger in the first both suffered fatal injuries in the event. The driver of the first vehicle is apparently in critical condition. It is unclear what charges -- if any -- will stem from the fatal event.

As this incident suggests, the choices that individuals make can have much more significant impacts than they may have initially imagined. What started out as an attempt to dine and dash turned into a fatal car accident that claimed the lives of two individuals. As a result of this event, the family of the driver who died in the second vehicle may wish to consider filing a wrongful death claim. This claim could lead to the pursuit of reparations for their loss and other damages permissible under Arizona law.
