Brian Keith Morgan Arrested in Solo DUI Crash on Main Street in Mesa Last September

Mesa, AZ (August 12, 2021) – On September 22 last year, Jessica Eckersleydied in a DUI solo vehicle crash on Main Street. 

On Tuesaday, August 10, police arrested a 29-year-old Brian Keith Morgan and now faces a manslaughter charge.  

Reportedly, at around 9:15 p.m. on Sept. 22, a black truck headed east on Main Street approaching 102nd Street when the vehicle veered off the roadway to the left.

No other vehicles involved in the collision, however, the force involved ejected both Morgan and his female passenger, according to a court document

EMS took them both to a hospital for treatment, but the female passenger, Eckersley later died.

Police indicated that the minimum speed the vehicle could have been operating at the time of the crash with the brakes applied had to be between 45 and 57 miles per hour. 

The speed limit for the area was 45 mph. 

The Arizona Department of Public Safety Crime Lab analyzed blood taken from Morgan and found that it contained THC, which is in marijuana; hydrocodone, a prescription painkiller; ketamine, an anesthetic, and commonly used street drug; and gabapentin, also a prescription painkiller.

Because Morgan lost control of his vehicle without reason, killing Eckersley, and caught with drugs in his system without a prescription, he faces one count of manslaughter. 

A preliminary hearing for Morgan is set for Aug. 19, and he is being held on a $50,000 bond. 


We at Sweet Lawyers extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and loved ones of Jessica Eckersley.
