On Saturday (4/3) at approximately 4:20 PM, Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a one vehicle traffic collision in the area of N. Escalante Blvd. and E. Bradley Bay Dr. in Meadview. The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, identified as Joey Douglas Preston, 41 of Meadview, was pronounced deceased on the scene. The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Accident Team responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.

The investigation revealed that Preston was driving a four door Jeep truck west bound on Bradley Bay Dr. at a high rate of speed. The vehicle, which had no doors, left the roadway before coming back onto the road. The vehicle began to fishtail and Preston, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. Preston suffered head trauma resulting from the ejection. The vehicle then continued traveling west bound, striking a stop sign and coming to a final rest just west of the intersection of Escalante Dr. The investigation is ongoing and the cause of death will be determined by the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office.
