One killed, one jailed in deadly crash
KINGMAN – A motorist was booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Center following a deadly traffic accident on Historic Rt. 66 Sunday. Department of Public Safety (DPS) and Northern Arizona Fire District (NAFD) personnel responded at 5:35 p.m. to the incident about 14 miles north of the Kingman city limits.
“A sedan was traveling eastbound. Another vehicle was traveling westbound and collided with the eastbound vehicle when it turned left across the westbound lane,” said DPS spokesman Bart Graves. “The rear seat passenger in the victim vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
The woman’s name was initially withheld, pending notification of kin.
“The driver of the victim vehicle and three other passengers in that car were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for their injuries and released,” Graves said. He said the driver of the at-fault vehicle was jailed for manslaughter and driving under the influence.
The crash investigation continues.
