According to reports, a motorcyclist and a truck were involved in a crash near McClintock Drive. Officers said a silver Dodge was headed westbound in the HOV lane and hauling a trailer when the motorcyclist fell into the HOV lane.
The truck ran over the motorcycle, which was then lodged under the truck and burst into flames. Although an investigation is still underway, the motorcyclist may have lost control of the bike.
The motorcyclist was run over by the truck and investigators are trying to determine if the victim was run over after the collision.

Arizona Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Nearly three percent of all Arizona motor vehicle accidents involve motorcycles. Motorcycle fatalities have been dramatically increasing in Arizona. In fact, the number of motorcycle accident fatalities have nearly doubled since 2010.
The number of motorcycle wreck fatalities and injuries may be linked to the increase in operators not using a helmet. In Arizona, only riders that are 17 years old and younger are required to use a helmet.
At Phillips Law Group, we encourage all riders to use a helmet while riding. Helmet use is estimated to reduce the risk of death in a crash by 37 percent. The use of a helmet can also decrease the risk of suffering a serious head injury.

I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Liz was great
Phillips law group is the best around!
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
