The law team at Breyer Law Offices, P.C. was sorry to hear about the deaths of two people on January 10 caused by a rollover accident that happened on I-40 near Kingman before 2 p.m., according to a news report published in The Tucson Citizen. Three people were riding in a van that was pulling a trailer when the vehicle rolled over, leaving two dead and one injured. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims during this difficult time, and we wish the remaining victim a quick and full recovery.
Police are unclear on exactly what happened to cause this crash. We often see rollovers caused when drivers have to swerve to avoid something or when a vehicle is impacted by another vehicle. This Arizona rollover accident could have occurred because debris was in the road, animals were running across the road, other cars straying out of their designated lanes, unsafe lane passing, and more. Cases like this deserve proper and thorough investigation to find out exactly what happened.
