A 2-year-old boy is now the only one in his family to survive a crash that occurred in Phoenix earlier this week.
Phoenix police reported Saturday night that 8-year-old Shihada Lewis, who was riding in the backseat with the boy, has died. The crash also killed Reshad Lewis, 34, and Nickole Lambert, 25, who were riding in the front of the vehicle. The boy, whose name police have not released, is reported to be in serious but stable condition.
At 4:40 p.m. on April 20, Phoenix police responded to a two-vehicle crash south of the intersection of 32nd Street and Paradise Lane. Police said the sedan was driving southbound on 32nd Street at a “higher than normal” speed when it entered the two-way left turn lane and crashed head-on with a pick-up truck.
The driver of the truck, a 49-year-old man, suffered minor injuries.
Sgt. Alan Pfohl, a Phoenix police spokesman, said earlier this week that investigators had learned that the sedan’s driver, a 34-year-old man, had “a medical history and it’s possible he was having a medical event at the time of the collision.”
Pfohl described it as “a horrific car crash.”
A GoFundMe account has been set up in the family’s name.
