A Person Dies When An Armored Vehicle Turns Over In A Crash

When traveling, it is exceedingly important to be wary of surroundings: adhere to speed limits and traffic signs. No matter how safe a vehicle itself may be, if care is not taken to avoid hazards on the road, an accident may occur.

Firefighters from both Phoenix and Tempe were called to a crash involving an armored vehicle along State Routes 143 and  202 on Monday. One person was reported to have been killed in the accident.

ABC 15 in Phoenix reports that the crash happened at approximately 2:45 p.m.  A spokesperson for the fire fighting agencies said in a statement that at the time that the rollover crash was reported, agencies were already responding to two previous rollover crashes in the same vicinity.

Officials say that the armored vehicle rolled over and caught fire. Emergency crews were called to the scene to put out the fire and extricate those who were trapped inside. One person was reported to have died at the scene.  Two additional men who were also in the armored truck at the time of the crash were taken to an area hospital for treatment. They are listed in critical condition

The identity of the victim had not been released at the time of the report, pending notification of family members.  The incident is still currently under investigation by the Arizona Department of Public Safety. So far,  officials have not said whether speed or impairment by drugs or alcohol might have played a role in the fatal crash.
