As experienced Anthem fatal car crash attorneys, we were deeply disturbed by the news of a collision reported by ABC 15 News on July 21. The collision happened around 3 p.m. near the milepost 231 marker on I-17 when a car crossed the centerline from the southbound lane into the northbound lane. The car crashed into another vehicle, killing one person inside the other car. The northbound lane of the freeway was closed for several hours while police investigated the accident.
No reports from police were made on additional injuries in the car wreck or what caused the crash to occur. We are deeply concerned for the family of the person that was killed and want them to know they are in our prayers.
