KINGMAN—An Austrian cyclist traveling America was struck and seriously injured Thursday afternoon after being struck by a vehicle in downtown Kingman.

Kingman Police Deputy Chief Rusty Cooper said the accident happened in the 1200 block of West Beale Street shortly after 11 a.m.

Cooper said investigations show a Dodge pickup truck, driven by a 59-year-old man from Chloride, was reportedly traveling westbound Beale Street when he changed lanes, striking the bicyclist, who was riding in the curb lane.

The collision caused the bicyclist to be thrown, causing serious and life-threatening injuries. He was immediately taken to University Medical Center in Las Vegas for medical care.

Cooper said vision obstruction and speed may be a contributing factor in the crash. No citations have been insides at this time. The identity of the bicyclist has not been released at this time.

    Living in the area the past 15 years or so, I am often perplexed at the amount of accidents: Vehicle, Pedestrian, Bicycle and Motorcycles, we have vs. per capita population. Especially in the Bullhead tri-state area where I reside. Even the worst rush hour traffic on I-95 isn’t nearly as bad as the metro areas of say LA, San Diego, Chicago … or even smaller. I’m curious as to why, with wide open streets, no traffic congestion or other contributing factors, these types of accidents occur. Don’t have an answer, and honestly don’t know if there is one.
