Parker, AZ — September 3, 2023, Amy Lloyd Bagnall was killed and Doug Bagnall and others were hurt in a possible impaired trucker accident on California Avenue.

According to sources including local news outlets and social media, the incident apparently happened at the intersection of California Avenue and Riverside Drive at approximately 3:18 p.m. Currently, a truck driver is said to be in custody and potentially facing charges stemming from the fatal crash.

Details at this time suggest that traffic slowed along California Avenue at the Riverside intersection due to a red light. Video footage released by nearby business MNR Racing shows an 18-wheeler, going at a significantly higher speed than traffic, slamming into several of the slowing vehicles. The truck then apparently ran off-road where it crashed into a Terrible's Convenience store and caught fire.

It appears that a relative of some of the victims, Debbie Fritzen, told local news outlets that her cousin's wife was the victim killed due to the truck accident. It appears Amy Lloyd Bagnall, who appears to be from Aubrey, Texas, succumbed to fatal injuries as a result of the collision. Her husband Doug Bagnall had unspecified injuries. Fritzen also mentioned that two others named "Peggy" and "Bob" were hurt. Peggy was said to be in critical condition following the collision. Their current conditions aren't clear right now. It's unclear if anyone from the other vehicles hit by the truck had any injuries.

Following the crash, authorities allege that the truck driver left the scene on foot. They have arrested the alleged runaway driver, and they also now allege the truck driver may have been impaired at the time of the collision. Parker Police Chief Michael Bailey was quoted in the news saying that the truck driver faces pending charges for "second degree murder and eight counts of aggravated assault."

Additional details are pending further word from officials.
