Police in Arizona are currently investigating a recent crash that happened in the Tucson area. According to a recent report, the car accident contributed to the death of a motorcyclist. Charges have been filed against the driver believed responsible for the incident.
On the evening of Sept. 22, a motorcyclist was struck by a car at the intersection of Granada Avenue and St. Mary's Road. The victim, a 29-year-old male, is said to have suffered critical injuries and was transported to a hospital for treatment. Sadly, this individual succumbed to his injuries the following day.
According to police, the driver deemed responsible for this wreck failed to yield the right of way and struck the victim as he was coming through the intersection. The driver was ultimately arrested and charged with causing a crash with injuries. No other details regarding this individual have been released. It is unknown if any court dates have been scheduled in relation to this matter.
A car accident that results in a fatality can create a number of challenges for surviving family members. The emotional and financial losses can seem overwhelming, which is completely understandable. In this particular case, the victim's family may pursue a number of legal claims in an effort to seek compensation for any resulting losses. These claims may include wrongful death and survival actions which, if successfully litigated in an Arizona civil court, could result in an award of financial relief for any economic losses suffered by surviving family members, as well as compensation for any monetary damages, physical pain and mental anguish experienced by the victim himself before his untimely death.
