On Tuesday, January 7th, at about 8:55am KPD responded to a serious injury, two vehicle crash in the 1000blk Stockton Hill Rd. 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. Investigators determined that the 19y driver had fallen asleep, allowing her vehicle to cross into the oncoming lanes of traffic. Charges are expected; however, the investigation is ongoing. The roadway was partially blocked for over an hour.
