Man Gets 23 Year Sentence for Fatal Phoenix Car Crash

by Administrator 19. April 2010 02:55

A man has been sentenced to 23 and a half years in prison for charges stemming from a fatal alcohol-related car crash in Phoenix on Christmas Eve 2007.

 

According to Maricopa County prosecutors, 32 year-old Christopher Smith claimed he was sleepwalking when he got into his car and crashed head-on into a mini-van carrying four people on December 24, 2007. One person inside the vehicle was killed and three others were seriously injured, authorities say.

 

Smith was convicted of second-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault. According to officials with the Phoenix Police Department, Smith had a blood alcohol level of .20 percent at the time of the crash, 2.5 times the legal limit to operate a vehicle in Arizona of .08.

Do Speed Cameras Cause Accidents?

by Administrator 13. April 2010 02:12

A new website based in Arizona has begun using freedom of information laws to obtain examples of car accidents that would not have occurred but for the presence of a speed camera van. 

 

The group, known as CameraFraud, recently released a video of a car accident on State Route 202, which they claim was caused by a speed camera van. The video, shot on March 17th shortly before 4:00 p.m., shows a 2005 Ford SUV traveling through the city of gilbert at 65 miles per hour. As the 32 year-old driver of the SUV approaches a speed van, he quickly brakes and slows to 35 miles per hour. 

 

A 22 year-old in a red 2008 Pontiac G6 was following behind the Ford, who was not speeding, changed lanes to the right. As a result the two vehicles collided just a few yards from a Redflex speed camera van. 

 

According to CameraFraud, incidents of this nature are not uncommon. A study conducted by Arizona State University, in 2007, concluded there was a 54 percent increase in rear-end collisions, and a 9 percent increase in injuries from a rear-end collision on the Loop 101 freeway, the site of Arizona's first experiment with automated ticketing. 

 

Under the law, every driver has an obligation to be aware of the safety of others on the road, including other drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. If another person's failure to fulfill this obligation has led to your injuries, contact a Phoenix personal injury lawyer of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. at 800-763-0964 to learn about protecting your rights.
