BULLHEAD CITY–Police and medical personnel were kept busy Wednesday responding to multiple vehicle accidents from one end of the Parkway to the other.
Here is a preliminary list of crashes they responded to:
- Silver Creek and Highway 95–No injuries were reported in this T-bone like collision.
- Bullhead Parkway South and Highway 95–No injuries were reported in this crash as well.
- Suddenlink Way and Highway 95–One injury reported and taken to local hospital for evaluation.
- Marina Boulevard and Highway 95–No injuries were reported.
- Laughlin Ranch Boulevard and Highway 95–One injury reported and taken to local hospital.
A summary of each report was not immediately available. However, information regarding the Marina Boulevard and Highway 95 crash was.
Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said reports state a southbound vehicle collided with a northbound vehicle when they were reportedly making a L turn onto East Marina Boulevard.
A sport utility vehicle involved in the crash struck the concrete slab of the Riverview Mall marquee, destroying a portion of it.
“The northbound vehicle did have the green light, so the southbound vehicle making the turn was determined to be at fault,” Fromelt said.
The female driver was cited and released for failure to yield when making a left hand turn. The identities of those involved in the crash were not released.
With winter visitors arriving in the Tri-state and more people hitting the roads for the upcoming holiday seasons, drivers are urged to use caution and stay vigilant while behind the wheel of a vehicle.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, peak hours that car crashes occur are between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. In 2017, there were 3,107 accidents in Mohave County with 43 people killed and 1,417 were injured. In Bullhead City alone there were 502 collisions reported.
