A car crash happens often affects more people than those who were directly involved. The family and friends of any victims often have to deal with the aftermath of car accidents, particularly if their loved one died as a result. This may be what one family of an Arizona woman is experiencing after she recently lost her life when a man allegedly ran into her during a street race.
When any kind of car crash occurs, the effects can be devastating. However, when several car accidents that share common factors happen, it can be particularly perplexing. Families may be left with more questions than answers as they attempt to go on without their loved one. This is the situation that law enforcement here in Arizona is facing after multiple crashes involving wrong-way drivers.
When a car accident of any kind happens, those involved may speculate whether the incident could have been prevented. Sometimes, there are very clear indications that a crash was entirely preventable. When a motorist makes the choice to drive after consuming alcohol or another substance that can cause impairment, it is a decision that can have disastrous consequences.

The sight of a construction crew is a common one during the summer months. Most construction employees working around roadways expect that drivers will slow down, in accordance with state laws, to ensure everyone's safety.

They recently arrested the man, and he is now facing a charge of second-degree murder.
Getting into a car accident is a common occurrence in modern life. No matter how frequently it happens, though, a car crash is never a small matter for anyone who is seriously injured as a result of one. A person's life could change in an instant, all due to someone else's carelessness. This appear to be the case for a child who was injured in a recent car accident here in Arizona.

Car crashes fall into this category, as most parents are careful to teach their children to wear a seat belt and practice proper safety measures while in and around vehicles. However, parents cannot stop other drivers from behaving negligently. This may have been the case in a recent car accident here in Arizona that left a woman and three children injured.
Most people know just how dangerous using a cellphone can be while driving. Several states and local governments have passed laws forbidding people from using cellphones during the operation of a motor vehicle. The Arizona Senate recently passed a bill that makes it a crime for a driver to hold a mobile device while a vehicle is moving. Some lawmakers are concerned that this bill doesn't go far enough. Another Senate bill seeks to limit distracted driving overall, in the hopes that it will curtail the amount of car accidents.
