As Phoenix hit and run collision attorneys, we were shocked to hear that a driver smashed into a bus stop near 67th Avenue and Camelback Road at 3 p.m. on February 14, 2012. The driver stopped momentarily, asked if everyone was all right, and then left. Witnesses describe the driver as a black man in his 30s driving a white Hyundai Sonata with the license plate ARV4480. The people who were injured include a 46-year-old man and two women, ages 28 and 38. They suffered non-life threatening injuries, but had to be rushed to the hospital. Our thoughts are with them as they start their road to recovery. We urge anyone with information about this driver to contact police immediately.
Causes of This Phoenix Hit and Run Collision
This Phoenix hit and run collision was most likely caused by a distracted driver. Reports at this time do not indicate that any other cars were involved, so it is likely the driver just wasn’t paying attention when he veered into the bus stop. He could also have been drunk. Many drivers get distracted by cell phones, their radios, other drivers, and more. Driving distracted can be just as dangerous as driving drunk in some cases.
Arizona exceeds the national average for injuries, which prompted the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) to partner with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to develop a program designed to prevent injuries. This program has four major objectives:
- Identify injury issues and determine specific needs for programs and policies designed to prevent injuries.
- Stay abreast of developments in the injury prevention field.
- Understand how injury prevention fits in with the responsibilities of other Arizona agencies.
- Support injury prevention activities within the state of Arizona.
Since its implementation in 2000, this program has led to several achievements. The Arizona Department of Health Services published the “Arizona Injury Surveillance and Prevention Plan” report covering the period from 2006 to 2010. ADHS also appointed an external injury prevention advisory council and started an internal injury prevention work group. The program also aims to develop relationships with local councils and community coalitions designed to spread information about injury prevention.
