- Renowned Runner Killed in Arizona Bicycle Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
Arizona is home to countless athletes in different disciplines for obvious reasons. One of them is because the climate allows athletes to train outdoors all year, and many runners live and train here for that and other reasons. In addition, many runners will train on a bicycle from time to time as it strengthens muscles not otherwise used. Tragically, a very well known runner was training in that manner when she was hit and killed in an Arizona bicycle accident. Police are continuing to investigate the situation.
According to reports, the runner, Sally Meyerhoff, was riding her bicycle on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. when she encountered the intersection of White and Parker Road and Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway. She entered the intersection and was subsequently hit by a pickup truck. Tragically, this Arizona bicycle accident turned out to be fatal, as Ms. Meyerhoff was killed as a result of the collision. Police have ruled out any involvement of alcohol or other forms of intoxicants by the pickup truck driver, but a cause for the crash has yet to be identified.
Arizona Bicycle Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the woman who was killed in this tragic accident. Losing a life in such a manner is always difficult for those who were close to the person who was killed. In addition, this Arizona bicycle accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding crashes of this type state-wide. Every year, almost 2,000 such accidents occur, and they result in more than 1,600 injuries and in more than two fatalities every month.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
Clearly, more information would be necessary in order for any type of fault to be assigned. If it turns out that the driver of the pickup truck was at fault, then it’s possible that the family of the woman who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit. If such a claim is filed and it’s successful, the family could be awarded damages that compensate them for their medical, funeral and burial expenses as well as their lost income and their loss of companionship. If the pickup truck driver was not at fault, the family could still recover benefits from any existing life insurance policy.
If you have lost someone you love in a crash, you need to seek the help of Arizona wrongful death lawyers who have been holding those responsible for this type of loss accountable for many years. Contact the Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Thank you for your message, we will get back to you soon.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
