- Pickup Truck Crash Kills Three, Phoenix PD Investigates
The Phoenix Police Department responded to a fatal pickup truck accident Sunday night that resulted in the deaths of all three occupants after the vehicle flipped into a canal near the 9100 block of W. Campbell Road.
The accident happened at approximately 10:15 p.m. Sunday evening. Witnesses reported that the driver of the pickup truck may have been racing before the accident took place, but investigators have not yet determined what ultimately caused the crash and a spokesperson for the Phoenix Fire Department could not confirm that information to reporters.
Sgt. Trent Crump, spokesperson for the Phoenix Police Department, said that the vehicle caught air and landed in the canal. Each of the three vehicle occupants were ejected from the pickup during the impact. Two of the occupants died at the scene of the crash while the third was pulled from the canal and taken to a local hospital. That individual was pronounced dead at the hospital a short while later.
There is no information regarding whether alcohol was involved in the accident at this time.
Tragic accidents like this occur too frequently on Phoenix roadways because of negligence and reckless behavior. In Arizona, driving recklessly or aggressively is against the law and punishable by citation and fine. Reckless drivers may be:
- Fined up to $750
- Sentenced to jail for up to four months
In addition, negligent and reckless drivers may be liable for any accidents caused because of their irresponsible behavior.
If you or someone you love was the victim of a reckless driver, you may wish to file a lawsuit for the pain and suffering you experienced.

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.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.

I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
