The woman was driving on Montgomery Road early Thursday night when her vehicle was struck by a fast moving train. The woman sustained life-threatening injuries in the accident and died before police arrived on the scene of the collision. Initial reports lack any further information, but police are currently investigating what happened and how the crash occurred. Our hearts go out to the family of the woman who was killed in this fatal car wreck and we hope that their support system is strong enough to bring them through the pain.
Casa Grande Car Crash Statistics
This Casa Grande car crash resulted in the death of the driver. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), nine car accidents resulted in the deaths of 13 people in 2010. These statistics report, however, that fatal collisions account for just over one percent of all accidents in the city of Casa Grande. Unlike fatalities, more than one-quarter of collisions in the city result in injuries. In addition to injuries and fatalities, many wrecks within the city limits result in property damage without causing injuries. According to statistics, more than 70 percent of all crashes in Casa Grande result in property damage, but do not end in injuries or death.
How a Casa Grande Wrongful Death Attorney Can Help
The details of this Casa Grande car crash are still unknown, but that does not mean that the family of the woman who died should wait to contact a Casa Grande wrongful death attorney.

We would negotiate with the railroad company to provide the family a settlement that would cover the woman’s lost wages, her funeral expenses, and additional personal damages and loss of consortium for her family.
