GOLDEN VALLEY – Three people received injuries in a two-vehicle accident that occurred at Mile Post 24 on Highway 68 at 3:45 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2017.
Golden Valley Fire District, Station 11 and Duty Officer Captain Dave Cunningham responded and observed a small pickup truck laying on its side and a wrecked minivan sitting in the middle of the highway. They noted that the minivan had front end damaged and the truck sustained damage to the driver’s side.
According to firefighters, the driver of the truck allegedly entered the highway from north Houck Road and failed to yield to traffic traveling westbound on the highway. The truck that failed to yield right of way was “T-boned” causing the truck to roll numerous times ending up in the Cattle Crossing bar parking lot.
All drivers and passengers self extracted themselves and were standing near their vehicles when firefighters arrived. A total of five people were in the two vehicles involved in the accident in which three of the injured were treated at the scene. The male driver of the truck with a wrist injury and head trauma was then transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) with non-life-threatening injuries for further evaluation and treatment. The male driver of the minivan had minor head trauma and the female passenger in the truck had minor scrapes and scratches, both refused to be transported to KRMC for further evaluation and treatment.
The exact cause of the accident is being investigated by DPS.
