Crash in Buckeye Kills One, Sends Another to Hospital
Buckeye, Arizona—A violent rear-end collision Sunday evening has claimed the life of a young woman and sent a man to the hospital with serious injuries.
The incident occurred near 195th Avenue and Yuma Road. A white Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up truck, driven by a man in his 20’s, rear-ended a four-door hatchback passenger vehicle with such force that the entire back half of the hatchback was under the front wheels of the pick-up truck.
Passengers in the hatchback were transported to an area hospital. One, a woman in her 20’s, died, while a man in his 30’s remains in serious condition. Neither victim has, as yet, been identified.
Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office accident investigators are determining whether the driver of the pick-up truck may have been impaired.
We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the young woman who died, and we wish the injured man a speedy and complete recovery.
