KINGMAN-A rollover crash in Kingman on Monday was reportedly caused by William Eugene Shelley, 80, running a stop sign at the intersection of Johnson Avenue and North Stockton Hill Road, according to police.
Kingman Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki said officers responded to the accident around 11:30 a.m. and investigations showed Shelley, who was the sole occupant of his tan 1993 Dodge van, had failed to yield at a stop sign. She added Shelley then proceeded to turn left in the northbound direction onto Northern Stockton Hill Road and into the pathway of a 2002 Nissan sedan traveling southbound on the highway.
“The impact of the crash cause Shelley’s vehicle to rollover onto its roof and the Nissan to catch fire,” Sochocki said. “The vehicle was fully engulfed in flames within minutes, but the 43-year-old female driver was able to exit the vehicle with minor injuries.”
Both drivers were transported to the Kingman Regional Medical Center where they were treated and released with minor injuries.
Shelley was cited for driving on a suspended license, insurance violation, and failure to yield from a stop sign. The vehicles were disabled and towed away from the scene.
Traffic was rerouted for approximately one hour.
