BULLHEAD CITY–A fatal crash on July 4 claimed the life of a 36-year-old Las Vegas man.
Miguel J Guerrero-Santana, 36, died at the scene from injuries sustained after the truck he was driving collided head on with a Ford 250 on State Route 95 around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday, said Trooper Kameron Lee, with Arizona Department of Public Safety.
Lee said Guerrero-Santana was traveling southbound on SR 95–just north of Lake Havasu City–when he reportedly crossed over the double yellow line and struck a white Ford F-250 head on.
“The ranger pickup ended up back in the southbound lane after the impact,” said Lee. “The F-250 went off the road and rolled onto its roof.”
Guerrero-Santana died at the scene. A passenger in his vehicle was taken to a local hospital in Lake Havasu City.
The driver of the F-250 was airlifted from the scene and flown to a Las Vegas hospital for further treatment, said Lee.
The identity of the passenger in Guerrero-Santana’s vehicle or the driver of the F-250 have been released.
State Route 95 was closed for about six hours in both directions. It was reopened shortly after 11 a.m.
