As Sahuarita car accident lawyers, we never like to hear about fatal car accidents. It is especially saddening to learn about a 16-month-old child who died in a fatal Sahuarita car accident on November 27, according to a news report in the Sahuarita Sun. While he survived on life support for a few days, he was taken off on November 30. The family chose to donate the child’s organs to help others. The car accident involved a rollover and hit-and-run incident that also left the child’s father hospitalized with serious injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with this family during this difficult time. This is truly a tragic accident.
