A Scottsdale Woman Jumps From Car and Dies
In a tragic accident in Scottsdale on Saturday night, an adult female was found dead in the middle of the roadway after she jumped out of a moving car. A 21-year-old woman was driving the vehicle and was later arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. After the incident, the woman was taken to the hospital where she later died.
According to police, the incident happened at 65th Street and Indian School Road. Police officers arrived at the scene around 7:40 p.m. and found an adult female with injuries who was lying in the roadway. The injured adult was later identified as Summer Leann Crosswhite.
During the incident, Kiser and Crosswhite got into a verbal argument. At some point, the two women began drinking. However, they were unable to reach an agreement. They eventually started to argue and get into a physical battle.
During the altercation, Crosswhite opened the passenger door and ejected from the vehicle. When she exited the vehicle, she left it unlocked. Several people who were on the scene tried to rescue her but she was unable to stay in the vehicle.
Courtney Kiser, who was in the front passenger seat of the car, drove her home after the incident. She was later arrested on suspicion of DUI and will face charges.
The investigation is ongoing. Scottsdale Police officials say Kiser and Crosswhite were drinking and got into a verbal argument. Eventually, the two women became angry and started to fight. One of them, who was in the driver’s seat of the car, was a friend of Crosswhite.
Several other people were also hurt in the crash. Noah Perry, a three-year-old boy, was killed in the accident. He was a passenger in the SUV that was hit. His mother has since commented on the post.
Another accident happened in west Phoenix on Sunday night. The crash involved seven vehicles and sent more than a dozen people to hospitals. Kaniesha Sutton, a woman, was killed. Her daughter, Abigail, has also commented on the post.
The Scottsdale Police Department released body camera video of the accident, which shows the police and fire crews trying to save Crosswhite’s life. They gave her a field sobriety test. This is the second death in the city this week. It comes just days after another man in the same city was killed in a hit-and-run incident.
There are no further details at this time. Police are investigating this case and will release more information as soon as they have all of the lab results. Until then, police have asked residents to avoid this area.
