Truck Lands in Backyard Pool After Crash in Goodyear

GOODYEAR, AZ — A truck landed in a backyard pool after being involved in a 3 vehicle crash.  Another vehicle involved in the incident flipped and three people were hospitalized in Goodyear.

The collision occurred near the intersection of Centerra Drive and Jefferson Street around 9 p.m. Tuesday.  One vehicle was in a pool, another flipped on its side, and a third vehicle had a woman pinned inside.  The woman had to be extracted from the vehicle and taken to the hospital with significant leg injuries.

The drivers of the other vehicles were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  Police said the driver of the pickup truck, Victoria Knox, was booked for aggravated assault.  It is likely other charges will be added and a DUI charge is pending lab results.

The AZ Hometown Lawyers sends their best wishes to those injured in the crash.

Involved in an Accident?  What Next?

If you or a loved one is ever involved in a car accident, please contact our firm as soon as possible for a free legal consultation. There are two reasons why speaking to an attorney is important for your rights.  

Firstly, in Arizona, there is a time limit from the date of the accident in which you have the opportunity to make a legal claim. After this statute of limitations, you cannot file a lawsuit even if you have a valid claim. That means you must speak to an attorney, prepare parts of your case, and file a lawsuit all within a set period of time, so getting started immediately allows enough time to properly make your case. 

Secondly, any evidence, injuries, and witness testimonies are important to record as close to the actual incident as possible for accuracy and detail. Photos of the vehicle, location, and injuries will help illustrate the situation clearly, along with fresh memories from all parties involved and witnesses on the scene. Time makes these things harder to find, remember, or prove, so we recommend making an appointment to see our legal team as soon as you are able.
