Goodyear driver dead after crashing car through block wall into a home
GOODYEAR, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A woman has died after she was pulled from a car that crashed through a cinderblock wall and into a home in a Goodyear neighborhood this afternoon.
Around 2:30 p.m., Goodyear Police were called about an accident at a home in a neighborhood near 175th Drive and Durango Street. When they got to the scene they found a car that had crashed through a cinder block wall and careened into a garage of the home. The driver, a woman identified as 20-year-old Helen Guzman-Vasquez, had to be pulled from the car and was taken to the hospital where she later died.
A man in the neighborhood was one of the first on the scene after he heard the wreck. Eli Unger called 911, and along with several others, helped pull Guzman-Vasquez out of the car. He said he heard a “boom” and saw the debris flying from the wall as the car sped into the home. Unger says he never heard any braking or screeching before the crash.
Police say the car had been seen speeding before the crash. No other vehicles were involved in the crash and no other injuries were reported.
