Driver Arrested on Suspicion of DUI Following Fatal Car Crash in Peoria
Peoria police say that Grunert was allegedly speeding south on 83rd Ave. in Peoria when his black SUV rear-ended a car driven by Kathleen Petrotta of Surprise. Petrotta’s car was stopped at a red light at the time of the collision, which sent her vehicle into the intersection where it was hit by two other vehicles, a Chevrolet Silverado and a Toyota Tundra.
Petrotta was transported to a local hospital where she died shortly after arrival. The driver of the Silverado was taken to a local trauma center with non-life threatening injuries; the driver of the Tundra was not injured.
