** Vehicle vs Pedestrian Crash **

On Thursday, April 4th, at about 6:30pm, Kingman Police responded to a vehicle vs pedestrian crash in the intersection of E. Andy Devine Ave. and N. 4th St.   The investigation determined that a 2006 Toyota Tacoma, driven by a 45 year old Utah man, was westbound on E. Andy Devine Ave. when it struck a 71 year old Kingman man that was in the crosswalk.  The 71 year old man, who received serious life threatening injuries, was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center.  He was later flown to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas where he is listed in critical condition.  Investigators believe that the driver’s vision may have been obstructed by the setting sun and clutter on the dash of his vehicle.  The driver’s license was also suspended.  No charges have been filed, pending further investigation.  Additional impairment has not been ruled out.  The roadway was restricted for about 2 hours during the investigation.
