As experienced Chandler wrongful death attorneys, we were saddened to hear the news of the death of a teenager and the injury of three others in a collision on March 22, according to CBS 5. The crash took place at the crossing of Pecos Road and Emmett Road when a car carrying an 18-year-old man and another car carrying three people collided. Those riding in the second car sustained minor injuries but the teenage driver of the first car sustained life-threatening injuries and later died. The intersection was closed for more than five hours while police investigated the crash. Police have so far been unable to confirm the cause of the crash and are searching for a witness who fled the scene of the collision. We offer our deepest condolences to the family of the teenager who died as well as everyone involved.
