As Arizona fatal car accident attorneys, we were shocked and saddened to hear about a 20-year-old Northern Arizona University student’s death in a Prescott Valley car accident on Christmas Eve, December 24. It occurred at 3:20 a.m., according to a report in Fox 10. The student and his passenger were not wearing seatbelts. While the passenger was able to walk away with minor injuries, the driver died at the hospital after being airlifted to Phoenix. Our deepest condolences go out to the driver’s family.
Causes of This Prescott Valley Car Accident
Police say that alcohol may have played a role in this Arizona fatal rollover auto accident and plan to test the driver’s blood. They also say that the driver most likely would have survived if he had been wearing a seatbelt, and that it is a shock that the passenger wasn’t thrown from the car after it rolled several times – especially since he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt either. Still, many car accidents happen and regardless of whether the person was wearing a seatbelt, the car accident is still not their fault. Just because you are not wearing your seatbelt in a car accident does not mean you are not entitled to an injury claim.
