On Friday (12/30) at approximately 4:30 PM, Deputies with The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, the Lake Havasu City Fire Department, and River Medical responded to the area of Standard Wash outside of Lake Havasu City for a report of a dirt bike versus side by side collision. The incident reportedly occurred several miles into the desert east of Highway 95.

Deputies arrived on scene and found that the male dirt bike rider was unconscious and unresponsive with by-standers on scene performing CPR. Deputies continued with CPR, prepped the victim, and transported him to the highway for awaiting medical personnel. The dirt bike rider was transported to Havasu Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased. There were no injuries reported to any passengers in the side by side.

Investigations showed that the dirt bike was eastbound in a wash, and the side by side was westbound. The vehicles struck head on around a curve. The victim, identified as Kaden Abal, 18 of Lake Havasu City, was wearing a helmet and proper riding gear. Speed appears to be a factor in this incident.
