Tucson, Arizona - Alejo Madueno, 1 Other Man Killed in Suspected Drunk Driving Crash on Broadway Boulevard

South Sarnoff Drive and East Broadway Boulevard in Tucson

Alejo Carrillo Madueno Identified as 1 of 2 Men Killed in Broadway Boulevard Crash

Two men who were involved in a two-vehicle collision on Broadway Boulevard on September 30 have died from their injuries. Police have identified 57-year-old Alejo Carrillo Madueno as one of the victims. The second victim’s identity has not been released at this time.

According to the Tucson police, the collision occurred at around 8 p.m. at the intersection of East Broadway Boulevard and South Sarnoff Drive. A woman was driving a black 2004 Chevy Suburban eastbound on Broadway Boulevard and crashed into the driver’s side of a white 1998 Chevy Lumina that was turning left onto the boulevard from South Sarnoff Drive.

Both vehicles were pushed east upon impact. The Lumina, driven by Madueno, stopped on top of a raised median on the east side of the intersection. Madueno was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash and his passenger was transported to Banner University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, which he later succumbed to.

The driver of the Suburban was not injured in the crash. Responding officers determined that she was impaired and speeding at the time of the crash. Police are continuing to investigate this crash and no charges have been filed as of Wednesday.

Liability For Drunk Driving Injuries in Arizona

Here are some thoughts on the legal rights of people injured by drunk drivers in Arizona from attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin. He may give more insight into the laws behind a settlement after getting hit by drunk driver.

The legal options available to people injured by drunk drivers vary from state to state. In many states, including Arizona, these injury victims may have grounds for both a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver as well as a dram shop lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who provided alcohol to the intoxicated person who caused the crash.

In Arizona, dram shop laws say that people who have been injured by drunk drivers can file lawsuits against alcohol vendors if they provided the person who caused the crash with alcohol and that person was either:

  • obviously intoxicated at the time the alcohol was provided, or
  • a minor if the vendor was aware that the minor was under 21 or did not request identification.

Here is an example of a case that might qualify for a dram shop lawsuit in Arizona:

Let’s say that Daniel goes to the White Owl Tavern and has a few drinks. He begins to show signs that he’s obviously intoxicated, including falling off his stool and slurring his speech. Despite these signs, he continues to order drinks and the bartender continues to serve him. Daniel then leaves the tavern in his car and crashes into Harry’s vehicle, seriously injuring him. Harry may have grounds for both a personal injury lawsuit against Daniel and also a dram shop lawsuit against the White Owl Tavern.
