Sarah Warren Killed in 4-Vehicle Accident on Cave Creek Rd in Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix, AZ — December 11, 2022, 23-year-old Sarah Warren died in a four-vehicle accident on Cave Creek Road in north Phoenix.

Authorities say the incident happened around 4:15 p.m. along Cave Creek near Pinnacle Peak. Preliminary investigation suggests Warren was driving north on the roadway when she approached a construction zone that narrowed traffic to one lane. Police believe Warren collided with another vehicle at the merge point; it's unclear which vehicle merged.

After the impact Warren's vehicle passed through the raised median of the roadway and entered the southbound lanes. It then collided with a truck pulling a travel trailer and another vehicle.

Warren was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported.

The investigation continues. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Sarah Warren Accident in Phoenix

Police put together a rough sketch of what happened here, but a few sentences in the news rarely account for all the relevant details of an accident. A multi-vehicle crash involving crossover vehicles and a construction zone has a lot of variables to account for, and I have some misgivings about whether law enforcement will take the time and care needed to fill in every blank.

That's not to insult police, just to acknowledge that they often have many competing priorities and limited resources. If they have to rush through their time at the scene they may miss important details or reach incorrect conclusions. Obviously that can make big problems for victims and families looking for answers or help down the road, which is why I often recommend that independent experts take a second look and ensure nothing slipped through the cracks. At worst their findings confirm what police said, but the people affected deserve to know no stone was left unturned.
