Motor vehicle accidents: Fatalities, injuries follow fiery crash

The Arizona Department of Public Safety reported the death of two infants and a woman in a crash on a recent Wednesday. Whenever big rigs are involved in motor vehicle accidents, any occupants of smaller vehicles have little chance of escaping severe injuries or even death. This fatal accident involved a semi truck and four other vehicles.

According to the DPS report, a 41-year-old truck driver was eastbound in a semi on Interstate 10 at about 10.a.m. when he veered into the center lane and struck an SUV. The impact sent both vehicles across the median into the westbound traffic lanes -- the SUV rolled and landed on its wheels again. The female passenger and two children were transported to a hospital.

The big rig struck a van and two pickup trucks that were heading west, before the semi and the van erupted in flames. Two infants and the 46-year-old female driver of the van died at the crash scene. The drivers of one of the pickup trucks and the semi were taken to a hospital.

In the aftermath of catastrophic motor vehicle accidents like this one, many people are left facing mounting medical bills, lost income and other damages. Families who lose loved ones have to deal with the high costs of end-of-life arrangements among other emotional and financial losses. Financial relief of these damages can be pursued through the civil justice system. An experienced Arizona personal injury and wrongful death attorney can provide the necessary support and guidance throughout lawsuits that can be filed against the parties or parties deemed negligent.
