Peoria Car Accident Claims Life of Alexa Flores
Peoria, Arizona—Students at Sandra Day O’Connor High School are mourning the loss of freshman Alexa Flores, age 15, who died as the result of injuries she sustained in a car accident on the way to school on Wednesday.
As I reported earlier this week, Peoria Police Department accident investigators believe the car in which Alexa was riding ran a stop sign before it was struck by a pickup truck. Three other teens in the car were transported to local hospitals with varying degrees of injuries. Alexa was placed on life support and died on Thursday morning.
The driver of the pickup truck was not injured. Students gathered at the LDS church on west Pinnacle Peak Road Thursday night to remember the ways Alexa brightened the lives of those around her.
A car wash on Saturday, May 6 at 1:00 p.m. will be held at the Arizona Sports Complex located at 3555 W. Pinnacle Peak Road to raise donations in her honor.
We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Flores over this tragic loss, and we wish speedy and complete recoveries for those who were injured.
