- Woman Killed by Driver Fleeing Prior Crash in Tucson Car Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
When drivers are involved in Arizona car accidents, the law requires that they remain on the scene so that authorities can take the proper steps required to clear the area and to complete the necessary work. When drivers flee the scene of an Arizona car accident, it only makes the situation worse. Tragically, a driver fleeing the scene of a Tucson car accident on Tuesday wound up causing another crash soon thereafter, and the second crash that occurred as he was fleeing caused the death of a woman.
According to authorities, this fatal Tucson car accident occurred on Tuesday just after 10 a.m. at the intersection of East Grant Road and North Dodge Boulevard. The driver of a pickup truck had just rear-ended another vehicle, then took off down the road before hitting 44-year-old Marta I. Kellogg in the intersection because he ran a red light. Ms. Kellogg was killed as a result of the second accident, and the unidentified driver was arrested, although no notification of specific charges has been provided.
Arizona Car 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. She clearly did nothing wrong and was tragically in the wrong place at the wrong time. We hope justice is served in what is likely to be a criminal prosecution. In addition, this fatal Tucson car accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona car accidents. Every year, more than 65,000 people are injured and more than 1,000 people are killed in these occurrences.
Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
While it seems all but certain that the driver of the pickup truck will face serious criminal charges, it’s also possible that the family of the woman who was killed could file an Arizona wrongful death claim against the unidentified man. If such a lawsuit was filed and was successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the family for their medical, funeral and burial costs as well as their lost income and loss of companionship.
If you have lost someone you love to a reckless driver, you need to seek the help of Arizona wrongful death lawyers who have been holding those responsible for these tragic losses accountable for many years. Contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
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!
