Tucson, AZ – Woman Dies After Hit-and-Run at Wilmot & Craycroft Rds
Tucson, AZ (November 13, 2019) – A woman has died after a hit-and-run rollover crash that involved four other vehicles in midtown Tucson, officials say.
According to information from the Tucson Police Department, the woman was driving eastbound on 22nd Street when she was rear-ended by a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed around 12:20 p.m. Sgt. Pete Dugan, a spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said that the crash caused her truck to go over the median and roll over into westbound lanes, where she was hit by two vehicles.
One other person was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, while the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver in the vehicle that initially hit the woman’s truck fled the scene, and Dugan said the vehicle was found abandoned several blocks away from the scene of the crash. Officers are still looking for the driver of the vehicle at this time.
Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME, an anonymous tipster line. Authorities are still investigating the crash at this time.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Injurious Accidents in Arizona
Throughout Arizona, nearly 127,000 collisions occurred in 2018 alone, making it clear that car wrecks are an unfortunate reality of life. Furthermore, there has been an increase in the rate of injurious accidents and multi-car crashes across the state over the last 10 years. And many of these accidents are caused by driver negligence.
In addition to the physical and emotional trauma they’ve already sustained from being involved in an accident, victims must deal with insurance companies, negotiations with other drivers or passengers, and financial difficulties. These tragic consequences are made even worse when an accident occurs through no fault of the victim who suffers. However, those affected by these serious incidents can seek help from a personal injury lawyer and learn more about protecting their legal rights after a multi-car crash.
