A multi-vehicle car crash in Arizona is responsible for one individual suffering serious injuries and the deaths of two young teenagers. Local police are still investigating this auto accident. At this time, it is believed that the teen driver was operating his vehicle on the wrong side of the road when the crash occurred.
This three-car collision took place recently in Tucson on Golf Links Road. According to reports, an 18-year-old male was driving a small SUV in the wrong direction when he struck a pickup truck that was then pushed into a third vehicle. The 18-year-old and his passenger -- a 16-year-old female -- both died as a result of their injuries. The driver of the truck was transported to an area hospital with unspecified injuries. The driver of the third car was uninjured in the wreck.
Authorities do not believe that speed was a factor in this crash. All of those involved in this wreck were reportedly wearing their seat belts. Police have not released a time line for how long the investigation into this matter is expected to take.
Even though the driver believed responsible for this auto accident lost his life, the surviving victim and the family members of young woman that was killed may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses. Legal claims may be filed against the responsible party's estate and/or against the owner of this young man's car -- if different. Wrongful death and personal injury claims, if successfully navigated in an Arizona civil court, may result in fair and full compensation being granted for any documented damages.
