Fatal Gilbert Truck Accident Kills One Woman

T-bone accidents are nearly always very serious, many times causing permanent injury or death. When a truck is involved, the severity escalates due to the additional weight of the vehicle. As truck accident attorneys in Arizona, we want to take a moment to remind everyone again to be aware of their surroundings while driving.

Unfortunately a Gilbert woman lost her life in a t-bone accident on Tuesday evening (AZ Central 9/14/10). A pick-up truck t-boned her car on Tuesday, and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her husband, who was driving, was sent to the hospital but is expected to be fine. The driver of the pick up truck and his son did not have any injuries. The cause is not yet known. Our thoughts go out to the family of this woman at this difficult time.

Many times, t-bone accidents are caused at intersections during light changes. Some people try to rush to make a yellow light before it turns red, but don’t always make it in time. Drivers from the opposite direction sometimes proceed at a green light without looking left or right because they have the right of way, but by not doing so, put themselves and their passengers in danger of other speeding drivers trying to beat the light.
