The investigation determined that a tan in color Hyundai Santa Fe, driven by a 19-year-old Kingman woman, was southbound on Stockton Hill Rd. when she failed to negotiate a curve in the road. The vehicle crossed over the center line, into the path of a northbound, white in color, Buick 4 door sedan driven by a 69-year-old man and his 80year old passenger. The collision was head on, causing serious injuries to all parties. The 19y driver suffered a broken arm, while both elderly occupants in the Buick suffered severe life-threatening injuries. Both were flown to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas for trauma care.

The roadway was partially blocked for over an hour.
