Bicyclist causes accident on 1-10 at U.S. 60


02/03/15 - Okay.  WHAT???!!!!

What is a bicyclist doing riding on the freeway?  Is this allowed?
First, no.  It is illegal.
Second, it is incredibly stupid.
The story
A bicyclist riding eastbound on Interstate 10 at the U.S. 60 interchange triggered an accident on Monday night, according to an Arizona Department of Public Safety official.
The official said an eastbound driver swerved to miss the bicyclist and struck another vehicle.  It wasn't immediately clear whether anyone was injured.
Question:  Who is at fault?
Other than being there, did the bicyclist do something to cause car #1 to strike car #2, or was the sight of the bicyclist there so unusual that car #1 was distracted?
If the bicyclist is at fault, there may be coverage for the damages caused under a homeowners insurance policy.
If car #1 was simply distracted, then car #1 is at fault.
Either way, weird story and weird set of events. Very lucky here that no one was killed.

Moral:  If you want to ride your bike, stay off the Valley freeways.  Please.

One killed in I-10 rollover


01/05/15 - Westbound Interstate 10 reopened Monday morning in northwest Tucson after being closed overnight following a fatal one-vehicle rollover accident in which a Phoenix girl was fatally injured and two family members were also hurt.

Westbound lanes reopened Monday morning after being closed at Cortaro Road.

The state Department of Public Safety said 16-year-old Christlyn R. Martinez, of Phoenix, died from injuries suffered in the Sunday night accident on I-10 at Cortaro Road. A fire official previously gave her age as 18.

The driver was identified by DPS as 38-year-old Irma Martinez of Phoenix. She and another family member were hospitalized for injuries that were not life-threatening.

The closure forced westbound vehicles to get off at Cortaro but they could re-enter I-10 right away by using the interchange's on-ramp. Eastbound ramps remained open.
