On Monday night in Phoenix, a motorcycle-car accident took the lives of two people, when the motorcycle they were on collided with a car.
Phoenix Police Department spokesman, Sergeant Trent Crump, stated that the collision occurred at about 6 p.m., near Beardsley Road and 7th Street in north Phoenix.
Sgt. Crump informed that the motorcycle was struck by a car that was attempting to make a left turn, as a man and his female passenger on the motorcycle were traveling straight.
The two on the bike, identified as Jeremy Steves and Chantal Larrabee, both 22 years of age, died as the result of their injuries.
The driver of the vehicle turning left, a 32-year-old female, as well sustained serious injuries, though they are being reported as non-life threatening. On board her vehicle were two children, 8 and 11, who were unharmed in the event.
Police have informed that witnesses stated that the motorcycle had been seen speeding in and out of traffic moments before the crash.
According to police, no signs of impairment were reported. The investigation is ongoing.
This is a terrible story to hear about, and as a Phoenix motorcycle accident attorney, you see instances like this all the time.
Motorcycles are inherently dangerous, and even if it is not the rider's fault, even a slight bump can potentially cause a fatal collision.
