A family of eight was returning home to Los Angeles from a vacation in Mexico when their vehicle lost control and overturned on I-10, a report on ABC15.com stated. The accident occurred in the southeast Valley area of Arizona which left the female vehicle driver dead and the other vehicle occupants seriously injured. Of the eight family members, five were children with one under the age of 2. Investigators say that only the two adults in the front seats were wearing seat belts. According to officers at the scene, four people were thrown from the vehicle as it rolled over, leaving 2 others pinned underneath and one more person trapped inside the SUV.
No other vehicles are said to have been involved in this crash; however, investigators are looking at driver fatigue as a possible cause of this Arizona car accident. Aside from driver fatigue, there are a number of other factors that could have contributed to this unfortunate rollover crash. Perhaps there was debris on the road that the driver swerved to avoid or other factors such as dangerous road conditions or defective vehicle parts. If the investigation finds that dangerous road conditions or a defective component contributed to this accident, the family of the driver may be able to hold the city or the car manufacturer liable in an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit.
