As Arizona drunk driving victim attorneys, we handle many cases where passengers are hurt while riding with a drunk driver. A crash reported by The Arizona Daily Sun on April 30 indicated that just after 7 p.m. a 20-year-old woman was speeding while under the influence of alcohol in Tusayan when she lost control of the car she was driving and it rolled over multiple times. In addition to the driver, there were five children in the car at the time of the accident.
The woman fled the scene of the crash with her two children, but left three other children behind in the car. At least one of the children was reported injured in the wreck and that child was transported via ambulance to a hospital. The woman was later found and arrested. Our hearts go out to the families of the children who were involved in the crash and we hope that there were no more serious injuries. These children have claims against the driver even if she was their mother or related to them in some other capacity. Guardians for these children should discuss with an attorney how to pursue their claim so that all their damages are paid for by the at-fault party and their insurance.
