Thirty-Year-Old Man Dies in Motorcycle Accident; Phoenix Police Officer Injured in Separate Car Crash

A motorcyclist was killed during an accident.Two separate incidents involving a motor vehicle and motorcycle crash this weekend left police and fire forces in Phoenix working to investigate the causes and repercussions of the incidents, according to reports.

A motorcyclist died on Sunday, September 25, after the driver was involved in an accident near 68th Street and Mayo Boulevard, according to ABC15 News. The Phoenix Fire Department confirmed the 30-year-old male driver of the motorcycle died from injuries sustained during the incident.

Reports indicate the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed when he T-boned a sport utility vehicle (SUV) that was backing out of a driveway. The operator of the motorcycle ultimately was thrown underneath the SUV.

Phoenix Fire Department officials said the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, but the injuries he sustained were fatal because he was pinned underneath the truck. Crews removed the man, pronouncing him dead at the scene.

Another accident occurred early Sunday morning, September 25, according to reports from the Phoenix Police Department and Phoenix Fire Department.

Phoenix Fire Department spokesperson Scott Walker affirmed the accident occurred around 1:15 a.m. on Sunday. Witnesses said a sport utility vehicle collided with a police car near 73rd Avenue and Indian School Road. Walker said at a press briefing that the SUV subsequently rolled over after hitting the police car.

The alleged accident was serious, witnesses said. Walker confirmed four people were in the SUV at the time of the accident. Along with the four people who were in the SUV, the police officer who was in the police car was also injured.

Victims of car accidents who suffer emotional and medical distress following such incidents often consult with personal injury attorneys or injury lawyers to seek compensation for the costs associated with medical treatment.

All five people were treated at the scene, according to Walker. They were later transported to hospitals for further medical attention. None of the parties involved appeared to have sustained life-threatening injuries, Walker said.
