On Thursday, April 13th, at about 9:50pm, the Kingman Police Department responded to the 3500blk of Louise Ave. regarding a one vehicle roll over crash involving five Kingman teenagers that resulted in two fatalities and three with serious injuries.  Investigators determined that a four-door Dodge sedan, driven by a 16-year-old male, had been east bound in the 3500blk of Louise Ave., with the four passengers.  The vehicle began sliding sideways when it struck two electric poles causing the vehicle to roll numerous times before coming to a stop on its roof.  All four passengers were ejected. After officers and emergency medical personnel attempted lifesaving measures a 17-year-old female was pronounced deceased at the scene.  The driver, who was trapped in the vehicle, had to be extricated by emergency personnel before he and the three remaining passengers were transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) with life-threatening injuries. At the hospital a 15-year-old female died from her injuries.  The driver and two remaining male passengers were flown to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the Kingman Police Department’s crash team with the assistance of investigators from the Department of Public Safety.  Investigators believe that speed was a factor.    Names are not being released at this time.
