Another fatal accident occurred on State Route 347 today, the fifth in less than a week.
At 9:48 a.m. witnesses reported a vehicle, traveling southbound on State Route 347 entering the city, cross all four lanes and the median, according to Maricopa Police Department spokesman Ricardo Alvarado.
“The vehicle went through the dirt embankment and ended up crashing through a block wall and ended up in a pool in the backyard of a residence,” Alvarado said.
Alvarado said the driver, David McBride of Tucson, suffered a heart attack. McBride, 59, “was transported to Chandler Regional hospital where he passed from the medical issue.”
The vehicle crashed into the backyard of Joseph Larca’s home in the 43000 block of W. Courtney Drive in Rancho El Dorado.
